Publié le 2023-11-27

ONLY ONE AWAY WIN AWAY, FOR THE NEWLY-PROMOTED OYONNAX!

Coming from the second division Oyonnax pulled off the biggest shot of this round 8 of the TOP 14 with a 21-26 win away to Montpellier. The result lifted Oyonnax up to the 9th position in the standings, while Montpellier's 7th defeat in 8 rounds has taken them deeper into crisis...

 

BORDEAUX, PAU, TOULOUSE AND RACING AT THE TOP

UBB easily overcame Perpignan with an attacking bonus point (46-22), While Damian Penaud scored four tries in one half-time. The winger of France shone in his first match in front of his new home crowd at Chaban-Delmas.

Pau confirmed their new status as one of the top teams in the TOP 14 by beating the Stade Français, playing their best rugby (30-6), with an attacking bonus well desserved.

After their defeat in Castres, Toulouse responded well at Ernest-Wallon by beating Clermont with an attacking bonus (31-10). This bonus was earned on the last action of the match with a try from Baptiste Germain.

To close this round 8, the Racing came from behind to beat La Rochelle, who was quickly reduced to 14 men. The 32-10 win sees the Racingmen move to the top of the table.

 

LYON AND TOULON WIN IN STYLE

After 3 consecutive defeats, Lyon bounced back with a 42-29 home win over Aviron Bayonnais.

For their part, Toulon easily overcame Castres in the opening game (41-19). It was a win without a bonus, but one that puts the Var players in the 4th position, their best so far position since the start of the season.
