OAC keeps its turf. This is no longer a novelty, the Pibaro pitch does not match the ambitions of the club. It may have even cost the OAC points, if you stick to the statistics: three losses of the first team this season have been recorded at home, and the performance of Stefan Sor’s wards is impressive on the road (7 games, 7 wins). . At the request of the Cévennes leaders, the Municipality of Alesia is taking this issue seriously and is considering providing Pibarot with a hybrid turf. We are talking about an amount in excess of one million euros (1.2 million euros), which forces elected officials to strain their thoughts. Meanwhile, despite having 10 games left to play this season, including only four at home for the Alesians, the latter decided to save what was left of their turf by practicing for a week at the Saint-Jean synthetic pitch. du Pin. Only the last training of the week, organized this Friday evening before the Aigues-Mortes reception, will take place in Pibaro’s lair for a traditional tactical implementation. The Oacian technician will then announce the group of 16 players selected for this derby and he will inevitably be disappointed. It is a puzzle on all floors of 4-2-3-1 that awaits former coach Mende, especially in the middle with the return from injury of Jordan Aydoud and Aissam Fadil, who would like to cut playing time to Peyrard. -Brilliant couple. Behind him, after his return from the infirmary, Laley Fofana regained his seat with Alain Moges. Pretty good troubleshooter in the absence of the first name, Enzo Fontanelli, so regularly relegated to the reserve team (R3). Young Melvin Rytas, who has not yet had a chance with N3, impresses his training partners. “He’s monstrous! It’s hard with a man and good at raising”, one of them commented. It was all his father, Julien Rytas, a former OAC captain who was itching to see his son set foot in Pibaro’s meadow.

Derby for Europe. Tomorrow at 20:00 Nim hosts Montpellier on the sold-out Parnassus to surprise the 21st day of the Star League. After a precious success at Saint-Raphael (31-32) two weeks ago, a derby win is critical to continuing the race for fifth place, synonymous with European qualification next season. Currently in eighth place, two points behind Chambery, fifth, Usamistes should not lose any more points along the way. The mission promises to be delicate against Erolte (4th, 25 points), who have already beaten the Greens twice this season and continue to have three consecutive league wins. In this derby, Frank Maurice lost five players. The usual absentees, Hesham, Tesio and R. Salou, as well as Toby, were injured and will not return for ten days. On Monday, Sanad received five match suspensions, two of which were solid due to his behavior against Nancy. Having already played two matches in two against Varois, this is the last he will miss against Montpellier. A difficult absence for Nima.

Selected group: Debonnet, Paul, Rebichon, Guigu, Dupuis, Minel, Aquillo, Bonnefon, Nyateu, Yasuhira, M. Salou, Gibernon, Queiroz, Poyet, Jacobsen, Gallego.

Nîmes Rugby Club
