RM 92 vs MHR - Great reaction !

Racing Metro 92 takes over a nice win on this Saturday evening in Day 13 of TOP 14 against Montpellier. Ciel et Blanc, with a boiling hot and omnipresent duo Qovu and Fall, obtained an essential success for the rest of the season. (Credit : Fabrice Aygalenq // Attitude Rugby).

 

 

In a crucial confrontation, Racing started off its match the best possible way by getting a good hold of the ball and proposing heavy pounding sequences initiated by Jone Qovu Nailiko, followed by quick and simple passing plays opening break through possibilities to Benjamin Dambielle and WenceslasLauret. A great start rewarded of an easy penalty kick for Maxime Machenaud who opened the score and gave the first lead to Racing Metro 92. Ciel et Blanc players kept going with a heavy rhythm to really show their opponent of the night that Racing had ambitions for this match.

 

Unfortunately for Racing, Montpellier answered back and little by little gained the upper hand. A drop kick from Berard, followed by a penalty scored by Pelissié gave them the score board advantage. Both squads were sending back to back offensive plays: a missed penalty kick for both sides, but also a weird referee who forgot to blow on a dangerous tackle initiated by Bias on Lapeyre. On the following play, Racing got penalized and MHR was given an opportunity to add three points before half-time.

 

As the second half started, the Ciel et Blanc saw their offensives blocked by a good defense from the southern team. From that, they then chose to rely on a powerful Qovu who created breaks and space. From here came the try scored by Benjamin Fall, who along the side line gave a chip kick to himself over the defender, to make the touchdown. An incredible try, unfortunately non-converted by Maxime Machenaud, the kicker of the night. A few moments later, the other francilian winger Juan Imhoff crossed the field from one end to the other leaving the Montpellier defense behind him. His great run died a few centimeters from the opponent’s try line but offered Machenaud the leading penalty. From there, Racing controlled the game and almost took a comfortable lead to put them in a safe zone.

 

Ciel et Blanc had to react after their heavy loss conceded in Clermont last week-end. “We all had a good team talk and worked a lot all week long to play that way” confessed Fall at the end of the match. Seeing all the smiles of the francilian faces towards the end of the match in the changing room, the accomplishment feeling was well up. A crucial success for Racing which stays in the TOP 14 qualifying run and prepares perfectly the double confrontation matches against Harlequins.
