The SU Agen dispute the 2nd day of the Challenge Cup, this Thursday evening (20.45, French time, live on Be In Sport Max 4) on the lawn of Gloucester. The English, the finalists of the competition last season deal with this part with ambition, as they lost to Pau in the 1st day, last Thursday (27-21). In contrast, the Lot-et-Garonnais have not missed their entry into the competition with a wide success in the face of the franchise Italian Zebre (45-10), allowing them to be alone at the top of pool 3.
The staff’agenais has decided to continue its policy of opening by integrating many young people in the group. It is even greater, because among the holders for that match in England, only Loris Tolot is now regularly in the Top 14 while Sadie, Lamoulie, Fouyssac (replacing Thursday) Kotze, Miquel, Marchois and Ngauamo were lined up last Friday to Armandie. In total, five members of the winners of the Zebre are re : Lucas Tolot, Verdu, Tanga, Braendlin and Tufele.
