Paris Cockatoos vs ALFA Lions

The Cockatoos were defeated in the 2016/2017 grand final by the ALFA Lions who finished the season undefeated and on top of the ladder. At the Stade Jean Bouin, home to the rugby team Stade Français, the Lions took hold of the match in the first half and established a decisive lead. The match was played after the Stade Français/Racing 92 rugby derby, a fantastic opportunity for the sport to display itself in front of a large crowd and in an incredible professional stadium. The heavens opened as the teams were warming up, and after the Cockatoos had the first few shots at goal, the Lions turned it on and scored numerous unanswered goals to take a 70+ point lead into half time. Despite outscoring the Lions in the second half, the ‘toos were unfortunately never in the game after giving away such a lead. Congratulations to the Lions on a very much deserved victory!

A Jean Bouin, sous le déluge, les Lions concluent une saison sans défaite et deviennent Champion, tout juste un an après…
