Publié le 2024-04-29

Toulouse solid against Racing 92

On the opening round of this 22nd Top 14 matchday, Stade Toulousain came out on top against Racing 92 (32-12). Two weeks after their victory over the same "Ciel et Blanc" side in the Champions Cup, the "Rouge et Noir" have consolidated their place in the Top 2. The only black mark was the attacking bonus that was left on the table at the very end of the match... But you can't have everything, even when your name is Toulouse.

Bordeaux topple Bayonne at Jean-Dauger!

21 January 2022 was the date on which Jean-Dauger last fell in the league. 2 years and 3 months later, the Basques fell to a valiant Bordeaux side. With a brace from Louis Bielle-Biarrey, Union Bordeaux-Bègles climbed onto the Top 14 podium. However, this defeat relegates Bayonnais to 12th place. The Basques will have to fight until the end to keep their place in the Top 14.

Oyonnax win for the 1st time this year!

Oyonnax were the sensation of matchday 22, overturning Castres Olympique to win for the first time in 2024 (22-19). Trailing 7-19, the Oyonnaxiens managed to turn the match around, helped by the 2 red cards received by the Castres team. 
The win means they still have a slim hope of staying in the Top 14 next season.

Lyon win with a bonus against Pau

The LOU can rest easy. Close to the relegation zone before this match, Lyon dominated Section Paloise to win with an attacking bonus (38-20). The win gives them an 8-point lead over 13th-placed Montpellier in the TOP 14.

However, the Top 6, synonymous with qualification for the play-offs, is slipping further away for Section Paloise.

Watch Alexandre Tchaptchet's try for the attacking bonus.

Perpignan continue their impressive run

5th win in a row for USAP! The Catalan fans turned out in force in Montpellier and are now dreaming of a play-off place. With this victory (20-25), the Perpignanais are now 7th in the Top 14, just two points off 6th place!

For "Les Cistes", on the other hand, defeat at the hands of their neighbours was a bitter pill to swallow. Montpellier are 13th, and their place in the elite of French rugby is not assured.

We show you the try scored by Lucas Dubois, who finished off a fine team effort.

La Rochelle on top at home

Toulon lost the defensive bonus at the very end of the match...

In the standings, the Rochelais are 5th and the Toulonnais are 6th.
