Final adjustments before the shock


Bayonne between top 6 and red zone

10th in the standings, Aviron Bayonnais must win this evening, if they do not want to start looking towards the bottom of the table. With 43 points, they are closely followed by Lyon, winner of UBB, and Clermont, who lost against Racing (42 pts each). However, Bayonne remains undefeated this season at home, and even in a relocated meeting in San Sebastián, they have home advantage.

They remain on a short success by the smallest of margins against Stade Rochelais (13-12). Just three points behind their evening opponent, they have the opportunity to move to 6th place – occupied by Toulont – as the ranking is tight. Victory which would allow them to return to the race for the final stages.


Baptiste Serin, the man who can change everything for Toulon

Like a gust of wind on a house of cards. On December 9 in the Champions Cup, international scrum-half Baptiste Serin was seriously injured in the right shoulder. Verdict, a dislocation and a few months of absence. And much more than that. After a promising start to the season under the leadership of new manager Pierre Mignoni, the Var were in 2nd place in the championship before the injury of their playing leader. On the continental scene, the RCT was sadly eliminated in the group stages with the feeling that it had to do better.
