Is there any way to stream full match replays of the French games?

And/or a good highlights programme you can stream?

Bayonne have withdrawn from the cup and will not play any more games in the competition - so what happens to the points??? - The French also seem to want a change in the testing regs and be blaming us for their positive tests.
Confirmed in the Mercury but as of 5 pm yesterday on the EPCR website. “ it can be confirmed that no club participating in the Heineken Champions Cup or Challenge Cup has officially informed EPCR of any intention not to fulfil their remaining fixtures in the 2020/21 season”.

Not entirely sure what’s going on here. Suspect Bayonne don’t want to play, waving Covid around as an excuse and hoping not to get fined. Talks behind closed doors, methinks.
The plot thickens, now we have a ref for a, supposedly, non-existent match.

According to Chris Edgerton's WRW blog published today:

Bayonne said they were going to pull out of the games (but the statement didn't say they already had)

The next day EPCR said no teams had pulled out

Then French media reports seem to say after a meeting of the top guys on the French side plans were now that they will likely be played.
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

Don't know if replay streaming is available, but I generally watch live matches on cricfree.org/rugby

Top14 matches are shown live on the pay channel Canal+, but European games are shown on terrestrial tv, France2.

I stream using vipbox at the moment but the problem is watching live you have to try and guess which will be good matches. I'd rather watch after the fact when I can see it wasn't a bore or one sided. Also highlights are a good way of just catching up on the best of the action.

M. Robespierre - did you see the Nevers player get sent off for lifting the ref up in celebration? My initial reaction was that it was such a shame as the guy was clearly so happy about the try being declined, but in hindsight it isn’t acceptable to touch the ref (Neil Back!!) and if I’d have been the coach I’d be fuming at such a stupid act even though it might have been well intentioned.

Hi, Richie. No, I haven’t seen it. Might find a clip somewhere. I’ll check it out.

. Seen it! The Fijian winger seemed rather pleased with the victory in a close match and celebrated by hoisting the ref, who didn’t appreciate it at all!! Here’s the link:
