Lyon and the French stadium on Saturday passed between falls through Claremont and Pau respectively.

. Toulouse consolidate its leadership position

It was an important match against a direct competitor for one of the top two spots which meant direct access to the semi-finals. The Toulouse stadium imposed the hierarchy against Racing 92 (34-16) with the full dispensary. Les Rouge et Noir won 4 to 1 without appearing to be in trouble. They contained the midfielder of the fifteenth of France, Gael Fico, who entered the half-hour mark to make his first match under his new colors.

Yuan Huguet scored the first attempt in Toulouse before leaving five minutes before the end of the first half, seriously affecting the right leg. The early exit of the international wing, who may have played his last meeting, after announcing the end of his career at the end of this season, did not slow Toulouse’s career forward.

. Postponed another one

There was uncertainty throughout the week about the meeting between Bordeaux-Begles and Montpellier.

Initially changed from Friday to Sunday, it was finally postponed on Saturday after the Girondin player developed symptoms while his club had been affected for two weeks by the Covid-19 virus.

A new postponement has been added to Bayonne-Castres, Brive-La Rochelle and Toulon-Agen postponements, as well as to four the previous day.

What bodes well for a big puzzle in the coming weeks to rearrange the calendar with the start of the final stage, especially for UBB and Montpellier, who are still in the race for the European Cup and European Challenge.

In an ambush behind Toulouse and La Rochelle to snatch one of the first two places directly into the semi-finals, Clermont missed the opportunity in Lyon, winner 41-30, to get close to the leading duo.

Thus, the correct operation is for the LOU, which takes advantage of the forced unemployment of its first direct competitors, Bordeaux-Bègles and Toulon, to temporarily reach fifth and maintain hope of snatching the top six.

After the two teams were deprived of the usual matches and scorers, Jonathan Wisniewski and Camille Lopez were injured, and the two teams took turns in the most prominent events.

In a comfortable position at rest after an impressive attempt by their powerful winger Joshua Tuisova and the red card given to Clermont by Godecale Kankoret in the third row, Leoni allowed their opponent to return to the match, thanks in particular to Morgan Barra entering. .

They finally win, another attempt from Tuisova, the twelfth of the season, which denies the Auvergnats a defensive bonus.

. The French stadium is on the right foot

We wondered if the French stadium would not lack rhythm against Pau after a month of not playing between the European window and the Ile-de-France derby against Racing 92 was postponed at the end of last week.

On the right track by Sekou Macalou, ubiquitous in the early period, Parisians did not take long to respond to the outlines of a failed major success (46-32), despite six notable attempts, allowing them to continue dreaming of the final stage.

Recovering by beating Bayonne (43-33) last Friday, Bao, who is still penultimate, with three lengths of Basque in one more match, still has to hit the whip to avoid a barrage of descent.

Double cause for hope for the next day: a trip to the Red Lantern and Painkiller, Agen, with reinforcements at the inauguration of South African world champion Elton Gantjis, who will have ended his isolation.
