“First dances”: Anthony Jelonch and Antoine Dupont, nine years ago

This Thursday, “Premières danses” will be broadcast on France Télévisions and retransmitted on rugbyrama.fr after France-Namibia. A film which retraces the journey of the Crabos Auscitains during the 2013-2014 season, led by Dupont and Jelonch.

Rugby is full of stories to tell, each one more beautiful than the last. With “Premières danses”, David Alexander Cassan and Aline Magrez wanted to retrace that of a team like no other.

For 71 minutes, we dive or re-dive right into the middle of a group of teenagers for whom rugby was just a wonderful opportunity to get together, and above all to have fun. This beautiful group of friends managed to raise the colors of the FCA to the final of the French championship, before losing to Camille Chat’s Racing 92. The film was born by chance: “I was talking with one of the Auscita coaches at the time (Kévin Ribreau, Editor’s note) and I learned that videos of all their matches existed, explains David Alexander Cassan. It was then that I contacted Aline so that we could start making a film. Jean-Marc Bédérède, the manager at the time, gave us all the images, all usable, and we got to work…”
