ZOOM. Castres – Stade Toulousain in the Top 14: Dumora, the flair of the phlegmatic! The back of the CO distinguished himself with two tries and his leadership
The Castres rear showed remarkable game reading on his two tries during Castres’ victory against Toulouse (27-17). A reward for a CO leader, exemplary in his qualities and temperament.
He had announced it. He did it. Julien Dumora always keeps his promises. “Before the match, he said to me: ‘You’ll see, I’m going to score two tries.’ And when I saw him score his second try, I said to him: ‘Damn, you’re a dude you speak.” He’s a machine, I’m delighted for him, ”launched Castres opener Benjamin Urdapilleta after the meeting between Castres and Toulouse this Saturday.

Difficult to prove the Argentinian wrong, who therefore saw his teammate register the two tries of his team this Saturday at Pierre-Fabre, during the victory over Stade Toulousain (27-17).
And thus act like the good captain and manager of the locker room that he is. “He is a natural leader, presented as evidence the coach of the three-quarters David Darricarrère. He brings a lot to the locker room, positive, confidence. He knows how to say things and congratulate when necessary. »
“For once we have the right rebound…”
Even if it is especially to him that one tapped on the top of the skull in sign of congratulation. The two achievements of Béarnais were, like the part of Castres Olympique, full of opportunism. In support of Adrea Cocagi who had just gotten into a 40-meter run, the back gave an almost insolent lead to his team at the break (19-3, 39), before having flair and taking advantage of a blunder from Matthis Lebel, oppressed by Geoffrey Palis, to intercept the ball and flatten in extremis (24-10, 46).

“I am necessarily happy from a personal point of view, recognized, with all the modesty that defines him, Julien Dumora. On the second try, I anticipate and I have the right rebound. For once he smiles at us, we will not hide our pleasure. »
Always in control of his emotions
His reading of the situations spoke in his favor this Saturday. “He feels the blows and deploys a lot of energy, praised Darricarrère. He’s not exuberant but he’s earned everyone’s respect. He shows game intentions but above all has the ability to play fair. »
A capacity that he owes in particular to his calm and measured character. In hot moments, he remains one of the Castres who catalyzes passion or nervousness, manages to control the tension. And the disciplinary record since the start of his career – the 35-year-old is not the type to be often taken by the refereeing body –, since the Arudyen has never seen an official brandish the red against him. For only nine yellows in 17 professional seasons, that is to say the rigor of the boy.

A phlegm that allows him to remain lucid and not to be invaded by various parasites. Because one of his passes, intercepted by Matthis Lebel, could well have given birth to a trial in Haut-Garonne. Despite this error, the back did not restrain himself in his game choices, trying to carry the ball a few times into the “red and black” curtain. “When you manage, at this point in your career, to still have fun, it’s very good, admired David Darricarrère.
