Disappointment but no regrets for the hopes of Cahors Rugby which fell this Sunday against a solid and very complete team from Souston.

The Cadurciens’ great adventure in the final stages ended on Sunday on the Réaup-Lisse field at the stage of the round of 16 of the French championship. Even if the Lotois hopes probably deserved to do one more lap as a reward for the fantastic past season, opposite stood Soustons, announced as very solid. And it must be said that the reputation of the Landais was not usurped. Leading at the break with a score of 11 to 9 thanks to a try from Lucas Gaubert and two penalties from Simon Aboumejd-Le Berre, the “ciel et blanc” jeopardized their qualification for the next round in the first quarter of an hour of the second half. With 20 points conceded, the challenge at the end of the match looked complicated. With a substitute bench worthy of the event, the Landais kept control of the score and despite a last stand and a last try signed Clément Lefort at the end of the match, the teammates of captain Kévin Le Masson lost with a score of 37 to 21. “They were better than us” recognized Fabrice Vignals, the co-coach of this Espoir team which is coming out of a successful and promising season without regret.
Camille Pradines (pillar of Cahors Rugby): “It’s a shame to end the season so early. We had the team to go further. Now we have to bounce back for next season.”
Denis Caussanel, (co-trainer) who experienced his last match this Sunday at the head of the Cahors Rugby hopefuls group: “We lost against a big team from Souston. We had a good first half, but a very bad start to the second half, we couldn’t get out of our camp, they took the upper hand and they scored twice in quick succession to close the match. For me it’s a page turning. Congratulations to my group for their journey. This is a group with a future that still has to work. I wish him happiness and lots of victories.”
Didier Valade (president of Cahors Rugby): “We were in the game in the first half but in the second half, Souston took the upper hand. We are disappointed but we have no regrets, we found someone better than us. Congratulations to the group for their magnificent journey and thank you to Denis Caussanel for all the work accomplished with this group.”
