TOPS/FLOPS – The very good matches of Antoine Gibert and Camille Chat, the failures of ASM in touch… Find the Tops and Flops of the editorial staff after the success of Racing against Clermont (46-12).
Antoine Gibert was in the oven and at the mill
His match got off to a flying start with a pinpoint pass for Christian Wade, his winger, who scored the first try. Antoine Gibert was then very inspired ball in hand and precious by his game at the foot of occupation. He even took over from Le Garrec to strike, before finishing the match as a scrum-half, displaying his versatility. The icing on the cake, a try against at the end of the match (72nd). He is the great craftsman of the Racing victory against Clermont (46-12).
Camille Chat had fire in her legs
The Ile-de-France hooker delivered an astonishing match. Precise in his throws in touch, solid in the impacts, he also allowed himself some races with great strides of which he has the secret. He constantly put his team in the lead and proved this Sunday afternoon that he remains a part of Ciel et Blanc.
Alivereti Raka stood out
In a one-sided first half, the French international winger didn’t have much to eat from an attacking point of view. It was therefore defensively that he distinguished himself, with two decisive tackles on Nolan Le Garrec. In the second half, he went for his try after a very nice inside hook. His sixth of the season, which consolidates his position as top scorer in the Top 14.
The Clermont touch was feverish
Between the sloppy throws and the opposing counters, ASM has never been able to properly exploit its incursions into the Ile-de-France camp. Certainly, many holders were absent in the alignment, but the conquest in touch constitutes an important axis of improvement.
Four games without a win for the Auvergnats
Jono Gibbes’ men were hoping to take advantage of the international truce to put your head back. They remained in effect on three poor performances, including a draw and two defeats. Beaten by Bayonne at Marcel-Michelin (20-25), they were keen to make up for it by seeking an away victory, but it was not on the Racing lawn that they could hope for anything. .
