Beziers vs SU Agen by Sebmc
Twelfth of the Pro D2 last season, Béziers' target for this season is play spoilsport. After two days, Beziers occupy the sixth place with a win and a loss. During the first day , Beziers beat Tarbes home 20-19. The last weekend, the Biterois lost in Auch 23-16 with the defensive bonus. During the last game, Béziers showed some problems in conquest. The Biterois struggle, indeed, with the new rules. In fact, they relied heavily on their impact force last season and are they are often penalized in scrums this season. One problem that the coaches of Béziers should fix this week in training. The 8 behind of Beziers is very strong including former prop of Agen and international Georgian Beka Sheklashvili, the French international Remy Martin or former Bayonne Marc Baget .
Agen, relegated at the end of last season in Pro D2, has had a turbulent offseason with a lot of arrivals and departures. This has not prevented Agen to win its first two games of the season in Albi (17-12) and at home against Mont-de-Marsan (14-9). In both games, Agen had big problems in scrum but also in the construction of their actions. Against Stade Montois, it seemed that Agen could play 10 hours without scoring a try. The new number 10 of SUA, Francis Burton has accumulated bad choices and missed several easy penalties. In addition, Agen is weakened by injuries. The second lines Skeate Ross , Sergio Valdes , Leo Bastien, the third line Erbani Antoine, Steve Malonga, the scrum half Clement Darbo & Peter Ferrary and prop Marc Barthomeuf are injured. Number 10 Raphael Lagarde, missing against Mont-de-Marsan, should also missed this game. So, Agen is very weakened in second line , to the point that it only the young William Demotte is valid. The usual third line Wessel Jooste should form a pair with him. Given the large number of wounded, Agen recruited a medical joker : third line Fijian international Apisalome Ratuniyarawa. Normally he arrived in France on Wednesday. He could play this game but I don't think that he will be on the pitch. In fact, he has just 20 hours of flight, does not speak French and will have one or two training sessions in the legs .. We may add that this summer, the staff and players of SUA had announced that the targets of the pre-season preparation was the opening reception of Albi and Mont-de-Marsan games. He did not mention the match in Béziers. WIll the staff make a turnover in order to preserver some players for the two future receptions of Bourgoin and Narbonne?
I can't image Agen to win in Beziers given the number of injured players and the recent games of this team. Agen has lots of problems behind. I see Beziers to win by at least 5 points.
This bet is to take faster. Handicap will change very quickly .
