Ugo Mola, Stade Toulousain coach, after the 30-27 defeat against Racing 92: “The end of the first half and the end of the match eludes us a little, on the facts of the game and badly negotiated balls. We have the opportunity to kill and win this match. But Racing has shown character too. We do not have to be ashamed of our performance but we know that this Championship is going fast and that the points left on the way are often unacceptable. This delay taken during the World Cup, then today (Sunday) with the duplicates (Six Nations), for the moment, we are paying a little dear. We missed a little baraka. We were a bit naive at the key moments.
(On the choice of Cheslin Kolbe at the opening) He is a boy who can play everywhere and he will certainly be exposed to other positions during the season. (On the release of Sébastien Bézy after a shock) It can complicate things for next week and the weeks to come. We will show resources internally with our kids, and imagination. But the imagination has limits, it is better to play with players who master their subject and their position. “
