Top 14 By the Numbers: 2.17.19


18           for Scotland and Clermont 9, Greig Laidlaw, on 3 conversions and 4 penalties, as Bordeaux Bègles could find neither the ball handle nor the pace to attend a rampant Clermont XV; 40-15 the final at the Michelin: visitors played much of the match 1-man down as yellow in the 1st-40 and a red in the second, put travelers at the self-placed disadvantage; note: Scots captain Laidlaw played well, while Clermont and Les Bleus, half, Camille Lopez, had a rest ahead of next week’s 6Nats, France v Scotland Test... wotcher?

14          for Lyon 10, Jon Wiszniewski, on 1 conversion and 4 penalties made for well done roadies at the Stade Jean-Bouin and travelers got the result, 24-13, over Stade Français;

23           knocked through the sticks by Perpignan 10, Enzo Selponi, on the conversion of an early grounding by flyer, Jean-Marc Pujol, and 7 penalties struck against an ill-disciplined home squad as Montpellier gifted the Perps their initial win of the season, 28-10;

3             penalties struck by Pau 10, matched by 3 penalties from his opposite number, Castres 10, Ben Urdapilleta, with the difference on the day being a grounding by visitors 13, Thomas Combezou for 14-9 road joy in the Stade du Hameau;

3             also the number of penalties struck by Agen 10, Léo Berdeu, and went to defeat at Stade Armandie, 10-19, while Agen raised itself from relegation station, because…

2             trys for La Rochelle 9, Tawera Kerr Barlow, to both open and close accounts for the visitors, the last to break a 21-all draw and La Rochelle got the necessary on the trot over Grenoble at Stade des Alpes, 28-21; all home team numbers on 7 penalties struck by 15, Gaëtan Germain;

19           for visiting 10, Zach Holmes, on 4 conversions, 2 penalties and 1 try as a relatively depleted traveling Toulouse XV - sans Les Bleusians Ntamack, DuPont and  Ramos -  pounded out a fluid, 34-29 victory over Racing 92 at La Défense
