One of the two clubs promoted to Pro D2 next season is now known: Bourg-en-Bresse will join the second professional French level after his victory this Sunday afternoon in the semi-finals of the National championship against Albi (36-16) . Nice or Narbonne are fighting over the second ticket.
The Burgiens made the difference in the second period, when the score was 9-6 in favor of the Albigensians at the break. But two yellow cards inflicted on the visitors completely changed the face of this semi-final. Engelbrecht and Vasuniubu outside, Bourg-en-Bresse scored two tries thanks to hooker Clément Jullien and winger Hugo Dupont (on a movement of 70 meters!) To bring the score to 21-9. Before blowing it up to 36-16 and savoring this comeback in the top flight.
