Bordeaux-Bègles, who missed out on their last trip to Brive, took the lead at the expense of Agen (23-0) without reaching the offensive bonus in the moisture Chaban-Delmas Stadium Saturday for the account of the 9th day of the Top 14.
Patients and determined, the men of Christophe Urios take the opportunity to stick to the leader Lyon, host of La Rochelle Sunday in Gerland.
To summarize this part in a trench and wear battle would be an exaggerated strand but the UBB knew how to wait its hour to pierce the curtain of Agenais volunteers but helplessly offensively.
For the flights that have punctuated the start of the Bordeaux-Bègles season, we will go back. Given the conditions of play, it is a false rhythm that was invited at the beginning of the meeting with a SUA not releasing anything and playing eyes in the eye with the championship dolphin.
The Agen defense held almost a half-time, before being taken twice off-side (36, 40) and cracked by the first crossing of the match signed Tauleigne which ended with a forward Ducuing (37). ).
The result of this strong moment: six points for Botica, who had sent his first attempt on the post (6).
At the restart, the teammates of the second captain of the Blues Poirot finally accelerated and after a huge sequence of conservation, eel Cordero was going to point between the posts (13-0, 46).
With an additional penalty of Botica (52), it was a 16-0 conceded in a quarter of an hour straddling the two halves for Christophe Laussucq's men, orphans solutions to the physical defense, very clean and hermetic Girondins.
By force, the Lot-et-Garonnais have worn out and the UBB took advantage of it on one of the first balloons of the returning Jalibert. The latter passed his arms for a double relay of Dufour and Higginbotham, who served as a chistera Lesgourgues for the trial of deliverance and the hope of improved success (23-0, 73).
At the end of the match, twice, the Bordelais had the visiting line in focus but two blunders have extinguished their dream.
