CHOPPED OFF FROM EUROPE RUGBY. At the end of the quarter-finals of the European Rugby Cup, three French clubs qualified for the last four.
We couldn’t do better! Toulouse, La Rochelle and Racing 40 are the three French clubs entered for the semi-finals of the European Rugby Cup and allow France to make an almost faultless since only Montpellier, beaten by La Rochelle, missing the last four. At the end of a mind-blowing match, Stade Toulousain was the first to reach the semi-final of the Heineken Cup after a penalty shootout that is always full of suspense in rugby.
In the Franco-French duel, La Rochelle succeeded in overthrowing the leader of the top while Racing 92 went into steamroller mode against Sale. “There are still two steps left” launched Laurent Travers, Racing coach. “We are very happy with the result, very happy to live another semi-final. We are behind at half-time but it is not a delay in the ignition on our part. Even if, it is true, we relax on the last action, thirty seconds from the break, and we take this test from Tuilagi. This Sale team is absolutely out of place in the Premiership (7th). We had a good team in front and we, in the first half, lacked precision, patience. We rushed. I think it’s linked to our strategy which was to move them as much as possible. We had to hold on until the 40e or 31e.
On the program this weekend, the half- finals with Stade Toulousain who will face the Irish of Leinster, in Ireland, while Racing 360 welcomes La Rochelle.
