Thursday evening, Aviron bayonnais received Agen for the opening of the Pro D2 championship. A shock of relegated to a full and glowing stadium. Thrills guaranteed.
The spans of the Jean-Dauger stadium were full on Thursday evening for the return of the public (sold out) and the debut of Aviron bayonnais, relegated to Pro D2. A shock of entry facing the other ex-resident of the elite, the SU Agen.
The supporters were in fusion for the reunion with their team. A magnificent Hegoak sung by 12,500 people heat up the atmosphere. Followed by a landmark Pena Baona. Songs. Encouragement. And a stadium that explodes on the 4e Essay of the Basques.
It must be said that the action is spectacular, Super Rugby style. Kick to follow a little long, Rémy Baget flies into the Agenais in-goal to save the exit and acrobatically fold the ball backwards, bound for his teammate Arthur Duhau. That flattens out in a bullfighting atmosphere. A test synonymous with an offensive bonus. For a great victory 37 to 16.
