Amateur rugby – Federal 3: historic second round for RC Villeneuve against Roubaix

the essential
Winner in the first leg (30-32), the Villeneuvois are 80 minutes away from a historic climb to Federal 2.

Well, here we are! 80 minutes from a possible very good story for the RCV which can access the Federal 2 on Sunday evening. Since the start of the season, the Villeneuve leaders have never hidden it, clearly announcing the color and the objective of climbing to the next level. To do this, they have given themselves the means to achieve their ambitions with an expanded squad in the summer and the arrival of quality players (Fouad Boulaghrifa, Darini, Lamataki, Moustin, Léal, etc.). And on the green rectangle, the players also held their place as favorites of the group, contenders for a rise, by responding and taking action with live bullets.

“Now, me and all my staff have done the job. From now on, history belongs to them,” general manager David Ardilouze confided the other evening. The 2023-2024 season will therefore be played on Sunday afternoon at the Choisy site, with obviously the most important match in the history of a young club which will celebrate its 20th anniversary on June 8. A second round against Roubaix of the utmost importance to reach the Grail at around 4:30 p.m. and bathe in an ocean of happiness. A second round to definitively KO a formidable opponent who posed enormous problems for the “blood and gold” during the first leg in the North on its synthetic turf.

It’s no longer time to calculate!

A lawn which has also caused some damage in the ranks of the RCV with quite a few small injuries to be treated at the start of the week including the ankle of third row Moustin Méderick uncertain for this crucial meeting. With just two small points in advance (32-30), Louis Darini’s teammates who will be deprived of their center Théo Maradènes (suspended) do not have the same room for maneuver and the same comfort as on the evening of the 16th of final to go to Mauvezin (30-3). They cannot afford to manage or calculate. “If we have to give them 30 points in the first half, we will. Otherwise, we will have to be patient,” continues Ardilouze.

As for the Roubaix club, which also aims to move up to Federal 2, we still firmly believe in it. “We know where we come from and we know where we want to go” we can read on social networks. Especially since the Flanders players will recover their opener and they will move to the banks of the Lot with enormous ambitions. However, even if during the last two outings in Choisy, the guys from RCV had to fight to snatch the victory (41-35 in front of Stade Bordelais and 33-28 in front of Mauvezin), the club from the sub-prefecture lot-et- Garonnaise can be proud of having 20 victories in a row at home since playing in Federal 3.

And the game strategy will you say in this return match? Make this Roubaix team who will inevitably have their long journey in their legs run as much as possible and try to crush them in front, with a slightly more powerful local pack. Afterwards, the truth will only be on the ground. Gentlemen of Villeneuvois, it’s up to you now. It’s your story!
