Post Racing v La Rochelle Sky Sun 15:50
Might be worth a watch ?
Scarlets fans?
Should be a good game 2nd/3rd in Top14.
Different styles, Racing organised and somewhat boring, forward oriented especially near the line v free flowing La Roc ... they've picked Sinzelle on the wing, .. where he belongs .. they have been playing him 10
and leaving James and Lamb even off the bench!! .. and lacking any control when push comes to shove and Sinzelle's attacking and defensive prowess isn't needed any more ..; just stability and control .. cue failed late Euro away games ..

AS always ... could well end up a damp squid!!

Played at Racing new indoor arena

Big missing for La Rc = Vito best Top14 performer !! (La Roc back row ??)

AB Kerr-Barlow on the bench

Watch young hooker P. Bourgarit on the La Roc bench for this one, he' ace...
click 'Equipes' for team detail ..

PS Clermont got hammered by Lyon yesterday .. they incurred 3 yellows and gave awave 2 brain fart tries, they are now a poor 10 in Top14 and probably will not make Champs Cup next Season now .. Parra now absent 4 - 6 wks and Laidlaw was awful!!...so slow ...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
On reflection, ... and looking at french squad

In current French squad for Italy

Forwards: Camille Chat (Racing 92), Eddy Ben Arous (Racing 92), Cedate Gomes Sa (Racing 92), Dany Priso (La Rochelle), Bernard Le Roux (Racing 92), Wenceslas Lauret (Racing 92....
Backs : Maxime Machenaud (Racing 92, Henry Chavancy (Racing 92), Geoffrey Doumayrou (La Rochelle)

front row weakened Racing and they'll miss Machenaud at 9 but not kicking as Carter plays a rare game this Season!

Of which

Chat, Le Roux, start for Racing ..Chart was picked for original french squads as back up to Guirado but has had flu so is understandably playing for match fitness

Priso and Doumayrou bench for La Roc and as mentioned Vito a big miss..

So far from full sides, especially Racing :(

1/2 time and La Roc allowed only to be a shadow of their attacking form

Scarlets look a different class on this form but beware Racing who are developing well and their new Arena could be a fortress ..

Game levelled up somewhat, L R bench seems to make a diff Bourgarit, Priso, James, Antonio, Kerr-Barlow etc

but Racing resist and LR disappoint, largely closed down ...

Racing scrum strugling but not ref penalised or warned

19/5 still after 70

LR are loose, not at all to form ..

and all of a sidden James opens the defence and try ...

19/12

Carter off form kicking ...

game getting v scrappy

Racing close strongly

Racing honours

On this form Scarlets have nothing to fear ! :thumbup:

LR pen on 81 min .....

goes close thwarted on the line

all over no more fun

This Arena is fantastic and Lorenzetti investment looks good in business and rugby aspects

Racing goes to 2nd, LR to 3rd
