Details of England’s victory in the Champions Cup (20-28)

Details of England’s victory in the Champions Cup (20-28)

Last weekend, LOU Rugby lost to the Bulls in the Champions Cup opener.

In South Africa, the Red and Blacks came very close to a correction but effectively came back to close the gap.
Xavier Garbajosa is expecting a different display at the Matmut Stadium in Gerland this Saturday against Saracens.

The Englishman opened the scoring with a try from Jamie George in the 14th minute. Then the 21st second by Ben Earl.

LOU saw its opponent fly off the scoreboard in front of nearly 14,000 spectators. The best moment was Hamza Gabeche’s pick in the 28th minute, a powerful first try (5-15) and five minutes later (10-15). Lyonnais missed out on a chance to score due to a leg injury.

After returning from the locker room, Fletcher Smith gave his team the advantage (17-15) with a converted try.

But the wings have experience. In the 55th, a counter finished at full speed by Sean Maitland crucified the Roan defense (17-22). Despite two more penalties and a red card for Alec Cleary for a dangerous tackle, England held on until the end of the match. Final Score: (20-28)

LOU’s mixed results in these first two days of the Champions Cup are no laughing matter. But the details sometimes hurt the most in rugby. Now in the top 14 with a long-awaited trip to Toulon next Thursday.
