Led by one point at the break, the Clermontois then rolled over Castres to win in the Tarn with the point of offensive bonus (14-40), on the occasion of the tenth day of the Top 14. The match: 14-40 Auvergne’s success was not as clear as the score suggests, the CO even leading by one point at the break (14-13). In the first period, Castres and Clermont both fell into the ways of indiscipline. Many penalties whistled on each side, especially in the rucks, where players had trouble keeping their support. In the end, it was the Castres who fared best despite two failures at the foot of Urdapilleta. read also The film of Castres-Clermont The Clermontois, better entered in the meeting, had struck the first with a try of Camille Lopez, very in shape since the beginning of the season (author of 22 points). Following a good sequence of forwards in front of the Castres in-goal, the Auvergne opener took the interval and resisted the return of his vis-à-vis (15th). But ten minutes later, at the end of a long disjointed action, the Tarnese retaliated. Small side, Rallier, Dumora then Delaporte fixed the defenders perfectly and Adrea Cocagi spun towards the in-goal along the touchline (26th). Transfigured on their return from the locker room, the Auvergnats assaulted their opponents by printing a sustained pace. The Castres chained the faults and the referee had to crack down by distributing two yellow cards (Delaporte 55th, Nostadt 56th) and by offering a penalty try to the ASM after a penetrating group (56th). read also Calendar and results of the Top 14 Reduced to 13, the CO resisted as best it could, but Paul Jedrasiak scored in force a new Clermont try after a tumble of Naqalevu (67th). Matsushima even offered the offensive bonus to his family and give an even more violent scale to the score (72nd). Thanks to this authoritarian success, Franck Azéma’s players are getting closer to the top of the championship: they are second with 28 points and two games late (against Bordeaux-Bègles and Lyon). 1742 Clermont had not won in Castres for 1742 days. The last time was during the 2015-2016 season (17-28). The evening victory is only the second Auvergne success in the Tarn since the establishment of the Top 14 in 2005. The fact: Castres is no longer the master of his home What if Pierre-Fabre was no longer scary? Known for being a stronghold where it is difficult to win, the Castres stadium has already fallen three times this season in four matches.. After the Stade Français (16-22) and Bordeaux-Bègles (29-30), it is therefore Clermont who brings back the victory from his trip to Tarn, this time in large proportions. For Mauricio Reggiardo and his players, the situation is hard. Without some away performances (victory in Agen, draw in Toulouse), the classification of the CO would be even more alarming than it already is (12th, 11 pts). Should we see the consequences of the absence of the public, usually noisy to support the CO? Without a doubt. But all the teams are in the same boat in this sad period of emptiness and silence. read also Top 14 Ranking
