the first half was about an amazing style, elegance and efficiency
Celtics Stade vs. Kecskemét, as it happened …
Stade joined Celtics on Saturday to face the KARC Kecskemét Atlétika Rugby Club for a friendly game. KARC, club founded in 1979 by a couple of students and teachers at the Kecskemét College of Engineering and Automation Technology is the oldest rugby club still playing in the league. Could our Old Boys believe in the obvious the age and cumulative advantage/disadvantage theory. After 10 minutes the Viennese selection could already show a clear superiority demonstrating the talents of the backs. After Olaf, Guillaume and Pascal had leaked the first tries at an alarming rate and after our Fidji had gifted a try, the game could have been beyond them. This first half was about an amazing style, elegance and efficiency and Guillaume admitted at the end of the game that he has surprised himself with the speed he could reach for his first try …
During the second half, our opponent received some support from Dan and from our Fidji; the guy you prefer to have on your side. Again the game was balanced and the Viennese selection had more difficulties to reach the 22m. After conceding more than 60% of the possession in the first 10 mns and several tries, the Viennese selection finally had very few decent ball to play and could win the game with a tinny advantage
Thanks to Kecskemet and to Celtics for their fantastic hospitality, we will come back ! The Stade squad is further training on Thursday and more games to come ….
