Bordeaux Bègles – La Rochelle: bad operation for the Rochelais, stunned in Chaban-Delmas!


The shock kept all its promises! UBB scored six tries against La Rochelle to win brilliantly (34-14). Bad operation for the Rochelais who remain under pressure from the contenders for the Top 6 while Bordeaux-Bègles gets back on the podium.

23:30 – A complicated schedule

END OF LIVE! If Bordeaux-Bègles will have a perilous trip to Paris during the next day, the UBB has taken a big step towards the final phase this evening. For its part, the race for the Top 6 seems complicated for La Rochelle. Sixth in the Top 14, Ronan O’Gara’s players will host the Section Paloise before traveling to Toulouse and welcoming Racing 92 during the last day.

23:25 – The match summary

The shock kept all its promises! In a balanced poster with oppositions of styles, the Union Bordeaux-Bègles emerged victorious. Following a very balanced start to the match marked by the exit of Ben Tameifuna for concussion protocol, Ugo Boniface broke the deadlock with a powerful try. The start of an ultimately one-sided match. Five minutes later, Yoram Moefana is ideally served by Damian Penaud, author of a great breakthrough (12-0, 27th). Thomas Berjon sounds the revolt after an interception by Dillyn Leyds but the UBB winger takes advantage of a play to knock out the La Rochelle opponent. After a scratch in his five meters from Tameifuna, the winger raises with his hand and finds Jalibert who gives it back to him. The ball finally reaches Moefana and Bielle-Biarrey who scores another try from the break before the break (19-7, 40th).

When we return from the locker room, the music is the same at Chaban-Delmas. Tatafu flattened strongly before being followed by Lamothe (29-7, 50th). At the hour mark, the Bordelais recovered and Jalibert sent a kick straight ahead. If Alldritt cannot run, Penaud beats him into the goal to score Bordeaux’s sixth and final try. In passing, Jalibert pushes Alldritt on the head, which earns him a reprimand from his teammate in the French XV. In the end, Hastoy scored the desperation try for La Rochelle. With this heavy defeat, the visitors leave without a point from a complicated trip. The end of the season promises to be tense for Ronan O’Gara’s players.

23:20 – A prolific match

Bordeaux’s efficiency hurt La Rochelle. Yannick Bru’s players scored six tries. The last time that the Rochelais had conceded so many points in the Top 14 was on November 26, 2023 against Racing 92.
