This weekend's Top14 matches begin this evening:

Jan 22 La Rochelle v Bayonne (certain bp win for LR)

Jan 23 Racing v Bordeaux (will Vakatawa be dropped after his enormous brain phart v Toulon?!!)
Agen v Toulouse (Toulouse to cement their place at the top with a bp win)
Clermont v Castres (the wheels are falling off the Clermont wagon and I expect to see them win)
Montpellier v Lyon (will Montpellier climb out of the relegation zone?)

Jan 23 Pau v Brive (11th play 10th)
Toulon v Stade Français

Round 15 results of the Top14:

One interesting statistic - average points per match 55!

La Rochelle 40 Bayonne 3( France's 3rd choice hooker scores two tries - see video below)
Racing 32 Bordeaux 33 (another home defeat for Racing. France fly half Mathieu Jalibert completely outshone Finn Russell)
Clermont 59 Castres 19 (more like it from Clermont!)
Agen 0 Toulouse 59 (Agen threw in the towel on staying in the Top14 a few weeks ago!)
Montpellier 16 Lyon 21(Montpellier still in the relegation zone)
Toulon 35 S Français 13
Pau 27 Brive 32

La Rochelle's Pierre Bougarit, who is third choice hooker for the French XV behind Julien Marchand and Camille Chat, is swiftly making a name for himself as a try scorer, like this one against Toulon:

The La Rochelle v Toulouse match has been postponed, due to cases of covid in the Toulouse squad.

This'll be better news for Toulouse than La Rochelle, as several Toulouse players are in the French 6N squad.
Let's hope the match is reorganised for after the 6N!

Just seen the result! Two yellow cards for Clermont in the last few minutes sealed their fate.

Who among you, remembers Jean-Pierre Bastiat, No 8 for Dax and France (32 caps 1969-1978), who has just died of a stroke at the age of 71.
At 1m98, he was enormous for a No 8 and was part of the fabulous back row with Jean-Pierre Rives and Jean-Claude Skrela.
Here's a youtube clip.

Certainly do. Back in the days when the French knew how to play 'rugby à la française'. Give them a centimetre and you'd be 2 tries worse off in a matter of minutes.
