The declarations ahead of the game against Racing 92
Our men in red and black will challenge the Racing 92 team at Colombes, on Sunday, on Day 5 of the Top 14. The game kicks off at 4:15 p.m.
Here are the main declarations of the Toulon coaching staff and players after the press conference held in Berg, on Friday, ahead of the game.
Diego Dominguez, RCT manager: “It did us good to win in Toulouse. We fought our way to victory. Now, we have to show the same spirit, the same lucidity, and keep the momentum. When you set high standards, you can’t go down, because you’re convinced that you can do great things: you just have to keep going in the same way. After our terrible game against Brive, the team bounced back in Toulouse. Racing 92 made life difficult for us last year and this can only be a source of motivation!”
Laurent Delboulbes, RCT left prop: “It’s obvious that the week after the Toulouse game went better, given the result. We played well and we want to repeat our performance from last week. We won’t go as far as saying we’re going to win against the French champions, that would be pretentious, but we will try to make a good performance.”
Jonathan Pélissié, RCT scrum-half: “For the RCT, Racing 92 inevitably brings back bad memories, but it’s our job to start a new season leaving the previous one behind. But, whatever the team we play against, be it Racing 92 or not, the most important is to repeat last week’s performance in Toulouse. I personally have many expectations from this game, as I haven’t played much since the season started. It was a tough game for the Racing 92 team against Clermont last week, so they’ll be out for revenge. But our squad has experience and is used to situations like these. I feel the team’s motivation for this away game is high.”
