After three “Fanny” on the first day of the Mondial La Marseillaise à pétanque on Sunday July 3, the Rocher, Robineau and Lacroix triplet continues its rise in the competition.

The sun is out once again this Monday morning, as are the supporters and pétanque enthusiasts. The folding chairs are installed to attend the show of one of the best teams of this Marseillaise in the alleys of the Borély park.

I take my place, and by chance, I find myself next to Dylan Rocher’s coach, Jean Casale, founder of Fréjus International Pétanque and co-founder of the PPF (Promotion pétanque française). This is also the petanque games. Exchange with enthusiasts.

Facing the Robineau triplet, the Lacroix triplet, the family of Henri Lacroix. Marius Lacroix and his godson, of the same name, as well as Johan Demol, licensed at the boule tropézienne (83).

Game on. Difficult to concentrate, the grounds are all glued and without physical delimitation. Players often have to stop to let neighbors shoot. “It’s the Marseillaise, it’s folk, everyone mixes, we don’t even know where the games end, where it starts, we play on each other”comments Henri Lacroix.

The Robineau triplet takes a little time to get into the game. The first lead is not the most spectacular. On the Lacroix side, the level is there. Johan Demol shows his shooting skills.

The tension rises a notch at the second end. The Tropéziens put three additional points. The score is then 4-0. Dylan Rocher, Stéphane Robineau and Henri Lacroix must react. But Jean Casale remains confident.

The third lead allows the Robineau triplet to score its first two points. And to add two more to the next end (4-4).

Stéphane Robineau is impressively precise, even when the cap is very far away. The Lacroix lose the rhythm. Johan Demol makes a hole and Dylan Rocher does not fail to dismiss the awkward balls. This leads cost the Lacroix dearly. It is five more points for the triplet of Fréjus. (9-4).

Lead 6 is canceled after a drowned stopper, lead 7 also, drowned by Dylan. He could not do otherwise, after a bottle from young Marius Lacroix.

The Lacroix triplet is at an impasse. To the eighth leads, the game seems bent. There are five balls left in the hands of Stéphane Robineau’s team. Marius Lacroix must pull or take out the cork not to lose. He then signs a perfect diamond. A little reprieve.

Next to me, plus a free cm2. Everyone is there for the last balls of this game. Unless there is an extraordinary reversal.

The last lead is very high-flying, Dylan Rocher makes a spectacular shot far, near the sidewalk and allows the favorites to sign a fourth victory in this Mondial La Marseillaise à pétanque. From Grand Robineau, Rocher and Lacroix.

We do not expect to put only 13-0.

The level was raised this Monday morning, the Robineau triplet did not continue on its series of “Fanny”.It’s a very nice team, it’s my family, it’s my first cousin, it’s my nephews, and it plays very very wellcontinues Henri Lacroix. In addition we had a bit of success with the cap, which moved quite often in our favor.”

To see if the rest of the competition will also be in their favor, to perhaps go to the grand final, Wednesday July 6. This is the last year for Henri Lacroix. “They want to end in style”slips me Jean Casale.
