Post Top14 Round 9
Scores this W/End
Image

Some effects : players missing for AI’s, some awful weather

Castres a good away win to lift their performance.

Excellent Tlse/BDX matche (reported separately)

Agen beat Toulon (2T to 4)!! .. they forced Toulon into a forward dog fight and Toulon lost the battle. Ashton got 3 tries from FB and their backline was powerful eg Ashton, Tuisova, Fekitoa (1st match), Nonu, Radradra (ex X111), …. But denied good ball …..and put up a big defence

The big top table lower budget match Lyon/La Roc …2 of the teams that major on attack became an attritional match with La Roc winning with 1 T.

Racing beat Pau in the very last min with a perfect kick pass.

Brive(bottom club) beat Stade F in a thrilling finish … last min Stade try, missed conversion and failed drop in extra time conceded a 1 pt win to Brive

Mop beat Clerm (host of dev players) in a good game …attack/counter attack 4t to 3, Clerm earned the losing BP (Nadolo scored his 10th try as well as getting a yellow)
------------------------------------------------------------------


The table looks like this : …
Lyon up top but closely fought there for top6 and play offs as well as at the bottom relegation fight given Brive and Agen wins. Clerm deep in the league but I wouldn’t read too much into it, they showed a lot better today away to Mop and despite a junior squad. All pretty virile at the mo …

God only knows !! with the current 14 players now absent from selection.

There will be 'sort of' 2 squads for the 2 AB matches in 4 days ...

First squad gets declared this week ....

The fav french peoples choice XV from those available is

Bonneval Toulon (maybe Ramos Tls)

Huget Tls
Penaud Clerm
Basta Toulon
Lacroix La Roc 1st cap

Bellaeau Toulon 1st cap
Dupont Tls

Goudron La Roc
An other???
Picamoles Mop
---
Taofifenua Toulon
Vahaamahina Clerm
---
Slimani Clerm
Guirado Toulon
Poirot Bdx

Bench ...toss a coin

5 Toulon, 2 Tls, 3 Clerm, 2 La Roc, 1 Mop, 1 Bdx, 1 Ano

But that would leave the cupboard largely empty for the 2nd match in 4 days time? :scratch:
