Bordeaux reassure themselves against Racing

After their heavy defeat at Castres, UBB responded well in front of their home crowd with an easy 21-5 win over Racing 92. With Nicolas Depoortere on fire, Bordeaux are back on the podium. The Francilians, on the other hand, are on a downward spiral, suffering their fifth successive defeat in the league...

La Rochelle close in on the Top 6

It was a victory that will do La Rochelle's morale a world of good. In poor form since the start of the season, the Maritimes put on a show at Marcel-Deflandre. By scoring no fewer than 6 tries, the "Yellow and Black" secured a valuable attacking bonus point in the race for qualification. Final score? 42-3!
