VIDEO. Rugby: “It was a move not to be made…” Matthieu Jalibert’s nasty attack on Greg Alldritt, his teammate from the French XV

the essential
On the occasion of the 23rd day of the Top 14 between Bordeaux and La Rochelle, the UBB flyhalf harassed his teammate from the French XV with a provocative gesture after a try scored by Damian Penaud.

In the jargon, we call it a “nuquette”. At the time, not sure that Greg Alldritt, the third row of Stade Rochelais and the XV of France, is appreciated this gesture on the part of Matthieu Jalibert, his teammate in selection, this Saturday evening during a Top 14 meeting on the Bordeaux-Bègles lawn.

While Damian Penaud had just scored an incredible try, of which Matthieu Jalibert was at the origin with a long kick and Greg Alldritt guilty of a reaction far too slow to prevent the Bordeaux winger from scoring, the half of opening of the UBB had this (inappropriate) pat on the neck of its selection captain.

“Greg, he’s a player I respect”

A scene which did not fail to make the web react, furious at the attitude of the Bordelais towards the Rochelais. Exited just after this action, Alldritt seemed very disappointed and dejected by the progress of this meeting (34-14 defeat of the Rochelais in the end). As for Jalibert, who also came out around the hour mark, he returned to this sequence after the final whistle.

“I just leaned on Greg. These are things you shouldn’t do. I apologized to Greg afterwards, I was taken a little by my momentum and the euphoria. Greg, it’s is a player that I respect on this occasion, it was a move not to be made” commented the Bordeaux fly-half on Canal +.
