The Catalans, efficient, have mastered, Saturday, October 10, dangerous Grenoblois until the end. Or a fourth success in a row obtained with flying colors …
And four! Saturday, October 10 on their lawn facing a stubborn Grenoble, the Catalans did the job (well). Either a fourth success in a row obtained with flying colors. Superiors in conquest, the Blood and Gold gorged themselves on ammunition and, from the start, Volavola opened the scoring on penalty. Strong in defense, failing to express themselves accurately in attack, the Isérois responded immediately by Bousquet in middle position.

Upwind and offshore
More enterprising, the Catalans multiplied their attempts both upwind and offshore. Something to delight a white-hot public, but nothing to do. Around Fourie, the front eight of the FCG did not let go.
Upset, Usap then shifted into high gear. And after sweeping the field in its width, Volavola alerted his winger Pujol on the opposite side to conclude. Beautiful work!
Perpignan, 26 – Grenoble, 18. Aimé-Giral Stadium. Half time: 10-3. Referee: Cédric Marchat. Spectators: 5,000.
For Perpignan: 2 essays by Pujol (30th), Jaminet (68th); 2 Volavola transformations; 4 Volavola penalties (2nd, 45th, 55th, 62nd).
For Grenoble: 2 tries by Séguret (74th), Capuozzo (80th); 1 transformation of Selponi (74th); 2 penalties from Bousquet (10th), Selponi (51st).
Yellow cards for Grenoble: Ancely (40e), Fourie (55e).
Grenoble, the return
In lack of creativity but no solidarity, Grenoble cashed a new penalty in numerical inferiority upon returning from the locker room. However, still standing, the Isérois returned to the score by Selponi against the poles (16-6, 51st). Then Volavola for the fourth time, materialized the domination of his own before Jaminet, following an interception by Pujol, did not finish his race under the posts.
A stab for the visitors. Except that always so tough, the latter scored a test in strength by Séguret, then a second by Capuozzo after a crazy recovery from their 22 meters. But too late. Perpignan already had its arms raised to the sky.
