Agen vs. Colomiers Rugby: still on the gong!

Colomiers moved to Agen on Friday for the fourth day of ProD2. Our Columérins wanted to continue after their victory over the siren against Provence Rugby, while the Agenais came to seek their first success at home of the season. La Colombe started this meeting on a very fast pace for a new victory on the gong.

Colomiers Rugby had never won at Agen, and it’s now done! Our Columérins opened the scoring after seven minutes of play thanks to a drop from our opening half Maxime Javaux. Our Blues and Whites have their hands on the ball in these first minutes and are pushing to widen the gap. In the 22nd minute, our young third-line Pierre-Samuel Pacheco goes in force to flatten against three defenders. 10 to 0 for the Dove after 25 minutes. The locals will come back little by little while keeping the ball. A penalty and a try will be registered by the Agenais. 8 to 10 when returning to the locker room.

From suspense to deliverance…

It’s a duel between the two scorers that will start during the last 40 minutes. Maxime Javaux is the first to draw to lead 13 to 8. Ping-pong starts with a penalty on each side. But on the dismissal after the second penalty from our opener, Agen will score his second try of the match and go ahead for the first time in the match. After new penalties, Maxime Javaux passes the last in the 77th minute to lead 22 to 21. And it is a defensive sequence of more than five minutes which begins for our Columérins. And our third line Jorick Dastugue will come and make the decisive scratch to win at the Alfred Armandie stadium at the last minute! Second consecutive victory for Colomiers Rugby and a 4th place in this ProD2 championship.
