But where did we go to Stade Rochelle for the 2020-2021 vintage? This question hurts marine supporters. Last year, Ronan Ogara’s men finished their season with two finals (Top 14, European Cup). The first in their history. After touching the peaks on the fingertips, the rochels experience a delicate start to the exercise. At the opening of the championship, they conceded three defeats in their best 14 days, including a 16-20 defeat to Marcel-Deflandre (16-20 defeat to Toulouse). Then the other two from their bases (Racing 92 won 23-10 and Clermont won 23-22).
Ogara: “I’m not worried”
But now, there is no fire in the Yellow and Black house. Internally, we want to be optimistic. “I do not mind, Ronan Ogara was reassured after a setback in ver Vergan last Saturday (23-22). I have to show the way to convince the players that it will work. “
Since the start of the school year, the former Munster has won the Open position. Ogara, who was Jonah Gibbs’ assistant last year, is now head coach. Since arriving in Charente-Maritime in 2019, a rational choice as an Irishman has grown solid. “I do not think this change will adversely affect the group. Analysis Mark Andrew, Former House Winger (2018-2020). There are always plenty of sequels in Stade Rocheles. The club is starting a new cycle. Ronan took more height. But he always had a major sphere of influence, and he was a real winner. “
The first win will surely allow the Maritimes to start their season and regain their rhythm of the past year. “In their first match, Les Rocheles showed character, Mark Andrew advances. They made the game. This is exactly what they promised last season. The sin is scoring. They do not always validate their highlights. “
Here is the main change. During the last workout, the yellow and black grew into a surgical team. Even scorers with average stats against Paul Vault – as always – have been able to win all territories.
In content, they retained their DNA: effective success and strength in the path of confrontation. The machine was not damaged and it was seized. “I do not think they were morally attacked. Book Mark Andrew. They have a better game structure than the top 14 clubs. Once things are positive they will gain speed compared to last year. “
For this, employees at La Rochelle can rely on a framework that has undergone minor modifications in the off-season. “This group has had a lot of maturity since last year, Says Ronan Ogara. […] Against racing Clermont, We are not far from finding the click. But we were not efficient enough. I hope that happens this weekend. “ Berets have been warned. La Rochelle seeks to return home.
