Mazzunno RFC - Racing Besançon

84 End of the match! Victory to the visitors in this game. The match ends at 5 - 47.
82 The conversion by Claudiu George Enciu is missed, though.
81 Mazzunno RFC are just tearing the Racing Besançon defence apart here! It's almost as if there's only one team on the pitch as the ball goes from Claudiu George Enciu to Alic Alecsandru Cornivschi to Ciro Del Duca before ending up in the possession of Sandro Marinello, who runs over the line unopposed for 5 points.
80The ball is loose in open play and there is no offside as Mazzunno RFC pounce.. Turnover!
79A complex training ground play from Racing Besançon here, Craig Middleton throws the ball out to Denis Miquel and loops around for the return pass. Denis Miquel dummies the return ball to Craig Middleton and then fires the ball back inside to János Brecska who is running the angle into a gap. János Brecska drifts across the field and hands the ball on to Bemus Mamalis cutting back on the reverse angle!
All that guile and effort comes to nothing as Max Rush has read the play superbly and makes a big hit right on the gain line.
78It looks like Mazzunno RFC lost the ball in the ruck. Their forwards weren't quick enough to protect the ball.
77Impressive flowing rugby there! The ball is moved quickly from Claudiu George Enciu to Vincenzo Riotta to Alic Alecsandru Cornivschi who passes back inside to Calistrat Sandu. He then sends a long cut-out pass to Alexandre Olibeau, but the ball doesn't quite go to hand. Nice attempt, and good vision, but it didn't quite pay off that time.
76Turnover. Mazzunno RFC now has possession and the backs are ready for a new attack.
75Craig Middleton throws a long pass to Guilhem Benard. Mazzunno RFC puts the winger under pressure quickly though, and he fails to get the pass to Pierre Taillandier.
74Ruck. Racing Besançon get the ball from that one and their scrumhalf can be heard frantically giving his instructions for a new attack.
73Craig Middleton pulls the ball out of the ruck, and darts through the defence, avoiding the tackle of Max Rush. He passes to Erwan Duvallet. The fly half tries to take the ball on, but he is superbly tackled by Claudiu George Enciu.
72There are players smashing into this ruck from both sides.. it is a real contest for the ball.
Eventually the Racing Besançon players gain the upper hand and the ball emerges slowly on their side.
71Logan Joyce thinks he sees a gap, but Llywellyn Pullman is ready for him and brings him down.
70 It's a long way out, but Claudiu George Enciu points at the posts. He lines the ball up on the tee and sets himself for the kick. Well struck, but the ball drifts just to the left of the posts. He cops some flak from the crowd for that miss. How embarassing - that might teach him not to call his shots in the future.
69Joaquim Aubin is brought down hard! The defence are all over him, but he's holding on in hopes of support arriving. The ref blows for a penalty to Mazzunno RFC. You just can't hang onto the ball after you've been tackled like that.
68Nice breakthrough by Joaquim Aubin who gets low and charges. He cannons into Ciro Del Duca like a stampeding bull, but Ciro Del Duca wraps him up and manages to bring him down. Looks like we finally know what happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object.
67Claudiu George Enciu takes the kickoff, launching the ball high into the air over Mazzunno RFC stadium. Joaquim Aubin positions himself well, and takes the ball in the air right in front of Calistrat Sandu. Good hands from the Racing Besançon player there.
65 Erwan Duvallet converts the try. The score is now 0 - 47 here at Mazzunno RFC stadium .
64 Five points for Racing Besançon! Craig Middleton pops a deft pass to put Cédric Raoul over for a try.
63Scrum for Mazzunno RFC. It's a good feed, but Racing Besançon put in a mighty shove. They're pushing Mazzunno RFC off the ball. They've taken one against the head. Fabulous work by the Racing Besançon front row!
62Some good attacking play by Racing Besançon here. Craig Middleton easily dismisses Max Rush before sending a long floating pass towards Erwan Duvallet. That looked forward, but not to the touch judge. A short well timed pass to Rodolphe Montagne puts him into space, but he fails to catch the ball. Erwan Duvallet doesn't look too happy to see his hard work wasted.
61The Mazzunno RFC hooker throws to Angelo Baretton as he jumps in the middle of the line, Denis Miquel has gone up to contest and has stolen it! That's a blow for Mazzunno RFC and they are scrambling to reset themselves defensively here.
60Racing Besançon want to spread the play, so Joaquim Aubin passes to Bemus Mamalis who flicks the ball on to Erwan Duvallet. The Mazzunno RFC cover has numbered up and Mauro Ugolini makes a solid tackle.
59Claudiu George Enciu takes the kickoff, launching the ball high into the air over Mazzunno RFC stadium. Joaquim Aubin positions himself well, and takes the ball in the air right in front of Sandro Marinello. Good hands from the Racing Besançon player there.
57 Look at that curl! Erwan Duvallet certainly has a very different kicking technique, but it sure does work.
56 What a try!! János Brecska wins the ball after a tackle and distributes it to his colleague running a good supporting line, Ifor Harding. The angle of the run takes him through the attempted tackles of both Calistrat Sandu and Claudiu George Enciu. He then passes the ball to Pierre Taillandier, who hands-off Sandro Marinello, before sending the ball on to Reg Underwood. Reg Underwood then sprints the last few meters and makes a slide-dive over the line to secure the five points. Great multi-phase rugby by Racing Besançon!
55Oooh! That's not a good kick from Claudiu George Enciu, i'm not sure it will make it to the ten meter line..
The crowd here at Mazzunno RFC stadium hold their breath.. János Brecska takes the ball just inches over the ten meter mark. Claudiu George Enciu got away with that one after all!
53 Erwan Duvallet puts it through the uprights for another two points.
52 Craig Middleton really showing his class here with a great pass to send Cédric Raoul through a gaping hole to score untouched.
51Racing Besançon have stolen Mazzunno RFC's lineout ball! Sandro Marinello mistimed his jump, and Jordan Pope got his hands to it first. Good work by Racing Besançon at that lineout!
50Racing Besançon try to move the ball wide. The ball is passed from Craig Middleton to Pierre Taillandier to Bemus Mamalis to Rodolphe Montagne. It's all too lateral, and a bit too obvious though, and Max Rush is ready and waiting. They'll need to be a bit more creative than that to break down the defence.
49It's a scrum to Racing Besançon. It's wheeling around as the ball is fed in, but Racing Besançon still win the ball.
48Mazzunno RFC have an overlap on the right. Looks like they've spotted it too. Max Rush fires a quick pass off to Eddy Zuber who flicks the ball on to Llywellyn Pullman. He's rushed the pass though, and the ball evades the grasp of Jean-Marc Suse. That was a good scoring opportunity gone to waste.
47Good lineout for Mazzunno RFC. The hooker finds his man perfectly, and Eddy Zuber wins the ball in the air.
46From the ruck, Craig Middleton gets the ball out to Erwan Duvallet. The fly half sets off up the touchline, but Claudiu George Enciu puts in a good tap tackle and he falls into touch.
45It's a scrum to Racing Besançon. It's wheeling around as the ball is fed in, but Racing Besançon still win the ball.
44A short pass from Max Rush to Claudiu George Enciu opens up some space. The fly half runs for a gap, but seeing the defence closing in passes to Kyle Vaughan who sadly drops the ball.
43At the ruck, it looks like Racing Besançon could be in trouble here..
The Mazzunno RFC back row hit the pile hard and the ball appears on the Mazzunno RFC side.
42Joaquim Aubin sets off upfield. He easily hands off the weak tackles of Mauro Ugolini, then Sandro Marinello. The fullback is in his way, so he offloads to Guilhem Benard who is running in support. The pass is badly judged though, and goes behind the man. A lucky escape for Mazzunno RFC there!
41Erwan Duvallet takes the kickoff, launching the ball high into the air over Mazzunno RFC stadium. Joaquim Aubin positions himself well, and takes the ball in the air right in front of Calistrat Sandu. Good hands from the Racing Besançon player there.

It's not been the best start for the home supporters, but still plenty of time for them to find something to cheer about!

36 Look at that curl! Erwan Duvallet certainly has a very different kicking technique, but it sure does work.
35 Pierre Taillandier fends off the tackle from Sandro Marinello. He runs a few meters and passes to János Brecska, who is running flat out at the defense. Great ball, right on his chest. János Brecska lines up Jean-Marc Suse and drops his shoulder, easily busting the tackle. Claudiu George Enciu tries to make the covering tackle, but he is carried over the line and a try is awarded. Real power running there!
34Racing Besançon have retained possession as their players were quick and picked up the loose ball. They'll be able to attack again
33Reg Underwood straightens his run and charges right at the defence. Sandro Marinello bounces off him and then Mauro Ugolini is effortlessly fended off. He sends a lovely pass to Bemus Mamalis, who is promptly ankle tapped after a spectacular dive by Kyle Vaughan.
32Claudiu George Enciu signals to his forwards to stay behind the ball and sends a hanging kick in their direction.
Both Llywellyn Pullman and Reg Underwood jump for the catch, but both players have misjudged the flight of the ball and it sails over their heads. Reg Underwood is the first to react, scooping up the loose ball on the first bounce.
30 Erwan Duvallet converts without difficulty.
29 A vulgar display of power by Racing Besançon! Ifor Harding goes for a pick and go and bursts through the tackles of Calistrat Sandu and Claudiu George Enciu before offloading to János Brecska. Oh no, he's run the wrong angle. János Brecska is met by Jean-Marc Suse and Mauro Ugolini but some how manages to beat the tackles and get the ball away to Denis Miquel. There are no defenders who will stop him so Denis Miquel pins his ears back and dives over the tryline. 5 points to Racing Besançon.

25That's a nice attack by Mazzunno RFC, the ball is spread out wide to Angelo Baretton through the hands of Max Rush and Eddy Zuber. What a hit! Angelo Baretton loses the ball as he gets absolutely smashed by a flying Jordan Pope.
24Turnover. Mazzunno RFC now has possession and the backs are ready for a new attack.
23Beautiful pass from Craig Middleton to Guilhem Benard. Racing Besançon's winger tries to dart past Ciro Del Duca up the touchline, but isn't quite quick enough to pull it off.

14Both Pierre Taillandier and Angelo Baretton go up for this throw together, the contest for the ball is fierce but Pierre Taillandier descends with it firmly in his grasp.
13After a moments hesitation Max Rush makes a decision and passes the ball to Sandro Marinello. He moves the ball on to Alexandre Olibeau before contact, but that initial hesitation means that the defence has had time to close down the space for Alexandre Olibeau and Jordan Pope wraps him up man and ball.
