Clermont v Toulon

Post by tigercaspian » Sun Apr 02, 2017 4:51 pm

What a titanic mash-up!!

As for respect the kicker.......absolute cacophony !!

Loved Waynetta speaking Franglais to a Georgian prop and a South Seas Clermont forward. Still at least he's giving it a go.

Clermont fans never stay quiet for kicks. Where we prefer silence for kicks, they are the opposite and clap and cheer during the kick.

It's the way they do it and it's the same for both sides. It's the sides that want silence for their own kickers and whinge when they don't get it but are happy to barrack the opposition that gets my goat.
I am neither clever enough to understand nor stupid enough to play this game

I assume you mean the Welsh, Scottish, Aussies and Kiwis.

Exactly!! If the crowd want to shout and play horns and Klaxons while a kick is being taken - no problem, so I don't buy into this sanctimonious "respect", except if I'm at a ground - like Welford Road for example, where I come a couple of times a season, then I remain silent, but when I'm back in Toulouse.........!!!

Jonny Wilkinson used to say it didn't bother him at all when he was at Toulon.

Whenever they've been to Wlford Road the Clermont fans have made noise and cheered during their own kicks as is their tradition and have remained silent for Leicester kicks which is our tradition - can't ask for fairer than that :smt023


A lot of southern hemisphere players have gone on record as saying that they find silence more off-putting than noise - it's all down to what you're used to

Yes Malheureusement (unfortunately) respecting the kicker is not part of the French game and fans usually cheer,jeer or clap a kicker depending on which side they are supporting. For me though the right team won. Clermont have always been my number 1 French side, They will have a tough job in the semi final though against Ireland's best side Leinster.

I wanted Clermont to win too despite RC's temporary posting to Toulon. I wish them well and think they make it through to play Sarries in the Final.

By the way, I don't object to the noise when kicks are taken - I thought it was a fantastic row !!
