If the center Adrien Séguret does not omit the indiscipline which sealed the Castres Olympique this Saturday during the defeat in Edinburgh (20-31), he wishes to salute the intensity put by his people throughout the game.
How do you get out of a match like this, where you think you could have done better?
Of course we could have done better. Because we felt we were in the game, we competed with them, we were neck and neck. Afterwards, in meetings like this, you have to be disciplined. And that was not our case. We made 24 mistakes, they 9. It is logical that they are ahead of us in the score.
Where did this indiscipline come from?
Details, rigor in defensive replacement, choosing the right moment to put your hands in a ruck too. There is also a question of effort, of more and more to do, especially in our defensive line. For example, we took a lot of penalties for offside.
However, there was better in this area in recent weeks.
It’s true that we came out of two or three big games in terms of discipline. There, we will have a peak which will rot our statistics. But let’s forget that side and keep the positive.
Like the intensity put in this part?
In the locker room, we said to ourselves that sometimes it’s not just the scoreboard that counts. There is also what we put on the ground. And frankly, today (yesterday), in commitment and intensity, we are there. Except for a few details and discipline. We must remember the good overall performance, with players who entered a little more into the workforce and who had a big game.
Besides discipline, what was the game about?
They were more specific on the ruck zones. We suffered at the start of the second half before raising our heads. It was during this start that we collected points. And once you’re behind, it’s more complicated.
