SCAN SPORT – Before the Federal 1 final on Sunday, the chat in the locker room was incredibly intense. Chills guaranteed.
Rennes’ crazy season ended in style. The Bretons had already acquired their rise in National 1 (4e division). But, Sunday afternoon in Valence d’Agen, the Rennes Etudiants Club disputed the final of Fédérale 1 against the Varois, and favorites, of RC Hyères / Carqueiranne / La Crau. And, before this match, the words resounded loud and clear in a vibrant locker room.
It is first Gaëtan Béraud, the emblematic captain of REC Rugby, injured and forfeited, who speaks to motivate his troops. To the sounds of binious. First chills. And madness with the second line Alexandre Gueroult. The co-captain, former champion of France Espoir, raises his voice, makes the decibels explode.
«Look at you men. It’s animal what happens to us! (…) The slightest centimeter that they will gain, at what cost! At what price !Goosebumps assured. Results ? A 15-11 victory for Rennes, crowned French champions of Fédérale 1.
