Louis Carbonel (Montpellier) after the victory in Toulon: “Not surprised by the whistles when hitting the penalties”

Louis Carbonel (opening half of Montpellier, winner 26-16 in Toulonhis former club): “It does a lot of good. We had a complicated last month. This week has been complicated too. This (sunday) evening, we did what was necessary to win away from home. On our faults, they managed to get back into the game but what was good was the character of the team and especially the forwards. They are rewarded with this try at the end of the match. I got a little scared when the crowd started cheering for the team. But we managed to take the game in hand afterwards.

This victory puts us back on track. Today I didn’t shake but the environment was weird. I had a surplus of desire this week and it was necessary to channel. I had already said that I would not be surprised by the whistles when hitting the penalties. There are a lot of enthusiasts and that was an even further motivation. I feel like I have discovered a new stadium. This (sunday) morning when setting up, I felt the poles were smaller (laugh). »

“We are behind on our objectives”

Pierre Mignoni, director of rugby at Toulon

Pierre Mignoni (Toulon rugby director): “There is a lot of disappointment (sunday) evening. It’s an unsuccessful match. Congratulations to Montpellier. As for us, we did forty minutes without rhythm. The trap was perfect. There was a lot of pressure foot play. We had to go a little faster, which we did in the second half even if small details did not turn out in our direction. We made mistakes that cost us dearly. It’s a bit of a halt after this first boulder. Today, we are behind on our objectives. But it’s not a final, there are 16 matches left. The second half of the season will be much better. »
