In an undecided meeting until the end, Castres and Union Bordeaux Bègles separate in a 23-23 draw, in the Tarn. Led at half-time, UBB regained control just after the break thanks to two converted tries, Castres equalized five minutes from the end on a penalty.

UBB is still unbeaten against Castres since the arrival of Christophe Urios on his bench. The Union and the CO parted in a 23-23 draw, this Saturday, September 18 at the Pierre Fabre stadium, on the occasion of the third day of Top 14. The Tarnais started the game better, they led to the half-time 13-9 thanks to a try by hooker Gaëtan Barlot, transformed by the former Bordeaux player Ben Botica.

But UBB took control in the first five minutes of the second period, thanks to Ben Lam. The test was transformed by Matthieu Jalibert, who replaced François Trinh-Duc at the break. The men of Christophe Urios confirmed in the wake, with a try from Cameron Woki, again transformed by the opener of the UBB (13-23).

Expected in combativeness and commitment, the UBB showed itself at the level of its opponent. In particular in the first act, when reduced to 14 and then led by 10 points, the Union turned its back before gradually returning to its opponent of the day. “We are reassured about the state of mind against a team that wanted to hurt us,” said Jefferson Poirot after the meeting.

Two penalties and a drop from François Trinh-Duc, holder in place of Matthieu Jalibert, allowed the Girondins to reach the locker room with “only” four points behind.

Nevertheless, UBB can harbor some regrets after this draw. Because she was up to 10 points ahead after her second converted try (Woki, 50 ‘), and she missed the opportunity to register a third on a forward from Seuteni in the 22 meters Castrais after a beautiful inspiration from Jalibert at the foot. “It’s a little frustrating, it’s a shame to let this team come back,” conceded center Rémi Lamerat.

Because, little by little, Castres has caught up again. Taking advantage in particular of the temporary expulsion of young Federico Mori at the hour mark. In the process, Arata scored a trickster try, transformed by Urdapilletta, to return to only three points from Bordelos-Bègles. Despite the final exclusion of South African Pieterse for a very violent shoulder tackle on Lucu, who no longer had the ball, the Tarnais managed to equalize on a penalty from Urdapilletta less than five minutes from the end of the meeting (76 ‘).
