A good old karma comeback.

This is what the Racing 92 winger Teddy Thomas experienced on Sunday evening.

For his team, it was even terrible with in the end a large defeat against Union Bordeaux-Bègles (14-37) during the 11th day of Top 14. It must be said that the Ile-de-France, and particularly the French international, have looked for it.

Rooming is good, but it has its limits.

Return of karma?

After already several questionable attitudes, including a relaxed spooning pass at a standstill, Teddy Thomas went even further.

We are at the end of the first half, the winger recovers the ball on the ground, stops and there, he simply signals to his opponent [Santiago Cordero] to come towards him like a boxer in the middle of a fight!

"This is the first time that I see that, me", admitted Christophe Urios, the manager of the UBB, at the end of the meeting.

Not "the bravest boy in the world" for Chabal

A gesture not very rugby which he used of course to pump up his players: “I told them three things [at halftime].

And the first, that they took us for idiots, he explains.

I don't know if that motivated them [his players], but we did use it yes.

Life is often fair.

"Result of the races, a second half of fire for the UBB with a 31-0 inflicted on Racing 92. And with the icing on the cake, a Santiago Cordero author of a hat-trick in the nose and beard of Teddy Thomas .

🗨️ "When you are five meters from the line and you have to put on a test, don't do anything cinoche. It swelled us a bit"

This attitude did not go unnoticed by a certain Sébastien Chabal either.

On the plateau, the rugby consultant of Canal + has given a layer on the Ile-de-France and Teddy Thomas: “I do not know if they take their opponents from above but I saw some gestures in this match that shocked me.

Maybe these boys need to come back down to earth.

I saw Teddy Thomas make a not very respectful gesture in the first half… And I don't think he's the bravest boy in the world.

Ouch, it stings!
