Each day, a number. Thanks to another victory in the francilian derby this past week-end (16-12), Racing gets re-familiar with success in TOP 14 and is moving upwards in the overall league table. It’s now time to get focus on the travel to Biarritz before the traditional winter break. A confrontation that Ciel et Blanc will have at heart to win to then enjoy freely their resting weeks.
As the most lineouts won by a single Ciel et Blanc player since the beginning of the 2013-2014 TOP 14 season. It is François Van der Merwe who reached those statistics of 32 balls caught in lineouts, including two steals out of opponents throw-ins. The second Racingmen of this ranking of the most ball won in lineouts is Juandré Kruger with a total of 14 balls caught. An impressive number knowing that from today, he only played two TOP 14 matches with Racing. The third player on the list is no one else than the doyen of this squad, Karim Ghezal with 13 throw-ins caught.
On the opposite team, Biarritz Olympique, we can find Erik Lund ruling the air area with 30 lineouts won, followed by Pelu Taele with 14 balls caught and Josh Fumo with a score of 12 lineouts won.
