The Gazelles in search of redemption

After the disappointment of Sunday March 12, against Pontarlier, on their lawn, but with a very reorganized formation, the Gazelles will make the very long trip to Villeurbanne, Sunday March 19, with a spirit of revenge in mind. Indeed, during the first leg which took place in Langres, at the Guy-Collin stadium, with a field in a London fog, the Langro-Dijonnaises had lost a little.

This match in Villeurbanne, on behalf of the 12e day of Federal 2, will be important in the quest to the 3e place and, to do this, it will be necessary to be more rigorous offensively with the ball and above all to commit fewer faults defensively, which are expensive on arrival. Villeurbanne is certainly not a thunderbolt, but the Gazelles must be more impactful around the rucks and fall back more energetically in defense, which would be more beneficial for the team.

Even without being a big team, the Rhodaniennes are well set in the 2e place of this hen. The Gazelles, by finding their workforce, will no doubt also find their automatisms, their desire, and their joy of playing. In these conditions everything is possible, with a bit of success, concentration in the transmission of the ball, and the will that drives them, it would be quite good and they would prove that, even being considered as the reserve of the Elite, they are capable of winning. The twenty-two girls who will present themselves in Villeurbanne have revenge to take and not only on their opponents of the day.
