Led to 15 points from his late match of the 4th day of Top 14 played in Castres, Brive won thanks to his striker Thomas Laranjeira (24-25). With this success, the Brivists are giving themselves some air.
To courage, Brive went to overthrow Castres to afford an away victory in a late match of the fourth day of Top 14 (24-25). With three tries in the first period, the Castres seemed able to win at home for the second time this season. They were finally beaten by Brivists who delivered a perfect second period to recover from a 15 point delay. It all came down to a penalty of over 50 meters, which Thomas Laranjeira won five minutes from the end of the match. The rear of CAB, the best director of the Top 14, was the hero of the money time and the man of the match. At 7/8 at the foot, he scored six penalties and converted a try from Axel Müller. Enough to offer the Corréziens significant success in the maintenance race.
And yet, Castres largely dominated …
Thomas Laranjeira sanctioned the indiscipline of Castres who lost ground in the second period. However, they led 21-6 at half-time thanks to 40 minutes which even promised them the point of the offensive bonus. From the 11th minute, Ryno Pieterse went into the CAB in-goal after a touch. Less than ten minutes later, Filipo Nakosi doubled the bet and even if Thomas Laranjeira started his number off to keep the Brivistes in the match, the COB managed a third action at seven points when Julien Dumora passed a new transformation, this time after an opportunistic essay by Anthony Jelonch. Success seemed to be promised to Mauricio Reggiardo’s men but they have completely cracked and remain in the red zone. For Brive, this second consecutive success against a direct competitor for maintenance is good before celebrating Christmas.
