France's rugby consultant understands that the referees also have to "let go" after the pressure of the match. On the other hand, he does not understand Sebastien Vahaamahina & # 39; s decision to retire internationally.
Judge of the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Wales-France Rugby, Jaco Peyper, "may have lifted the elbow too much, abused hops with Welsh fans and found themselves trapped in a crap"said Guy Accocebery, Franceinfo's rugby consultant on Monday [October 21]. The judge found himself in the limelight after posting a photo of him mimicking with Welsh fans the gesture of pushing French Sebastien Vahaamahina barred from this brutality in the match Sunday.
"I think he fell on a night when players can let go after a game, the referees are putting a lot of pressure on this kind of game right now, so I think there is basically nothing deliberate and mean, " continued the former international and france info rugby consultant. "I understand he would decompress."
While Bernard Laporte, the president of the French Rugby Federation, claims "a heavy punishment" against Jaco Peyper, Guy Accocebery doesn't believe him "a state affair".
On the question of ending the international career Sébastien VahaamahinaHowever, the rugby consultant is very surprised. "I think it's unfortunate that he drops his weapons so quickly"replied Guy Accocebery. The second line has actually indicated that it was his last match with France's XV. "Sébastien Vahaamahina is a relatively young player, 28 years old, I think he could be competitive for the 2023 World Cup in France", says Guy Accocebery, according to which the Clermont player is "maybe the best 2nd line in France". This is "Unsurprising that he made this decision before the World Cup, and even more surprising compared to what happened because in his stead I would have wanted to get revenge and make up for my mistake."
