At the same time, supporters of Connacht meet the pubs and clubs of the city as fast as pints of beer emptied. It is at this moment that the sky released a torrent of rain.The second tornado of the evening. But this is the first showered Irish enthusiasm exacerbated after the thunderclap Ernest-Wallon.
No more than they had imagined a victory in Toulouse last week, the Irish had thought of such a turnaround. Yes but here is Toulouse. Guy Noves and Maxime Médard had raised before the meeting, this particular week of preparation. We play like we train often say coaches. The feeling was good, the content was.
Toulouse have managed to make adjustments as we have developed in yesterday’s edition: the right solutions, the right weapons. It is characteristic of a great team. Especially when it was a lot to be forgiven. That is why Toulouse were not held to make tons at comments. They came to do the job they did not to go.

Breaking this vicious cycle home victory-defeat away .This includes obviously win out Ernest-Wallon while maintaining heading “home” and not follow the European path the last two weeks with the Connacht .Maxime Médard attests: “This season is a bit complicated for us, indeed, to chain the good results but, despite everything, we present the classification whatsoever Championship as in the European Cup. ”
Stage Saracens As France England
It will nevertheless find the right pace for Stade Toulousain will play a (large) part of the season during the month and a half that separates us from the opening of the tournament. Because it will have all its international French before they will leave in selection, it will get the maximum benefit from their presence.
There will be during this period two home games (Bordeaux, Clermont) two away games (Bayonne, Racing-Métro) and. A three out of four would be interesting.
As for the European Cup, so it will propose the decisive Stade Saracens, repeating France England two weeks later and then moving to Zebra face. A two on two likely provide a quarterfinal home and a bright spring.
The Number: 26
Points> From one week to another. Get trapped in the Ernest-Wallon stadium in Connacht (14-16), Toulouse have dramatically reversed the trend in Galway (37-9) is a differential (goal difference) substantial 26 points … The “price” of an appropriate tactical adjustment.
Treat The Number Of Trials.
