After their defeat in Aurillac, the USON Nevers have their work cut out for them

A friendly match is always very instructive. Some would say whatever the outcome. Not bad somewhere.

But there, we have to admit that the USON Nevers did not take the handle by the right end. Defeated, logically, on Friday evening (39-27) on the grass of the Jean-Alric stadium by a Stade Aurillacois team in verve, the Nivernais did not live up to their reputation and their new status, won since the great fight last season. with this place in the last four of the final stages.

Guillaume Mannevy: “There are still many details to be resolved”

On Friday evening, Xavier Péméja wore the mask. We can understand that. Moments after the final whistle, he gathered his players in a circle on the grass. No doubt to explain their disappointment. “Yes, it’s true, I’m disappointed with the result”, explained the manager. “We have worked hard, the preparation has been excellent, our training camp has gone well, but it is not enough. The result is there. I don’t really have anything good tonight.”

Xavier Péméja will have to find the strong words to motivate his troops, since the second preparation match is scheduled for Saturday 13 August at 4 pm, in Dinan, against Vannes.

As for the players, although we recognized that we had lost the point, we tried to be positive. “We really want to recover a good result from Aurillac. We know, however, that it is very complicated every time”, scrum half Guillaume Mannevy confided.

“The preparation has been excellent. We felt good. It’s a shame. I will say that there are still many details to be ironed out. We will train well to fine tune the setup. And then, we had a rejuvenated group. The new ones must also remove their marks. Against Vannes, we will have to show a completely different face. »

The same speech alongside the prostitute Isam Hamel, author of a new essay on Friday evening. “We are coming off a great last season. And there, we start badly against an opponent who is still very complicated to play. Well, in these cases, we say things to each other. Here, we’ll do it as usual. Nothing is lost. We are already thinking about the game against Vannes. We have a good week of training left. It’s up to us to motivate ourselves. »

Among the newcomers, Arthurs Barbier, a young scrum half arrived from Marcq-en-Baroeul (Federal 1), quickly integrated into the team. And he found some reasons for satisfaction, despite the defeat. “Of course, it’s not the start we could claim. Let’s just say that we are still in the shooting phase and that everything can go better. Starting with the game against Vannes. »

What made the difference, on Friday against the Cantaliens, “is the rhythm. We ran out, they had more, it’s simple. Also, we gave them gifts that we could have avoided. Even if they did it to us too. We’ll have to let it go against Vannes next week. Personally, I’m happy to be a part of this great group and I hope I can play a bit, that’s why I came. »

USON Nevers was hacked on Friday evening in Cantal. He will no doubt be able to shake off the consequences of this slip-up and quickly get back on track against Vannes. She needs it. Because two weeks later, it won’t be the same at Sapiac for the start of the 2022-2023 Pro D2 version.
