The first team of RO Agde will play the first final in its history on Sunday June 26.
They did it ! On Sunday afternoon, in front of nearly 500 spectators from Agde, the ROA managed to reach the final of the French Federal 2 championship, after beating Servette de Genève, 27 to 13.
Faced with a Swiss workforce made up of several former Pro D2 players, the Yellow and Blue of Olivier Dussaut and Thomas Janik took the match with a good fight, as they had promised each other during the week.
The emotional relationship between our players is, in my opinion, 30% of the performance
“The state of mind does a lot”, thinks President Thierry Dominguez, who concedes having paid “A small tear, but no one saw me! The emotional relationship between our players is, in my opinion, 30% of performance. The substitutes encourage, we don’t feel any tension between the guys. Everyone shoots in the same way.”
“When we are united, we can overturn mountains”thinks for his part Damien Bes, the sports director. “We suffered in the second half, but the guys had the merit of not doing anything.”
A meeting in Castelnaudary or Carcassonne
And as happiness never comes alone, Agde will face the Gersois of L’Isle-Jourdain on Sunday in the final, Des Gersois who fell from the Nantes ogre and who also confirm that even at this level, local rugby still has a bright future.
According to our information, the meeting could be played in Castelnaudary or Carcassonne. A beautiful rugby festival in perspective, which the club is preparing to supervise, so that all supporters can enjoy the moment before the match.
