A gesture of nervousness
The captain, just back from XV of France had made a beautiful copy until this silly gesture. His team gets a penalty on the gong. The referee whistled, and the third line seems "teased" by Dachary. Picamoles put his (open) hand in his face. The game director does not hesitate and returns the penalty. The MHR loses last chance to win.
