Match and rafting
Like every day since the start of the camp, the coaching staff concocted another day of activities to test the players both physically, but also tactically. Just a week from the start of the season and the visit of Rodez to the Stade Gerland, Les Lyonnaises had their first full-field practice match. Two 30-minute halves and a first chance for coach Patrice Lair to fire up his players, who responded quickly to their coaches yelling! The second-half featured a lot more intensity in the challenges, more rhythm, and better technique.
This afternoon, it's time for the traditional rafting with the departure from Bourg-Saint-Maurice. And for once, the sun was out right on time! The four boats raced through the 20km course down the Isère rapids in 2 hours and 30 minutes. A few overboard, nobody drowned and everyone had a good time! It was the first chance to let off some steam before the team starts preparing in earnest for Friday's friendly against FC Barcelona.
