T14 Round 8 WRap + international returnees to change lineups Moving Forward(s)

Top 14 Wrap - Round 8 - plus Guess who’s Returned for the Feast?

Home Happy: Agen, Brive, Clermont, La Rochelle, Toulon, Montpellier, Pau
Road Warriors: 0

On the Weekend, By the Numbers, and “Guess who’s back from battle in the East?”

Top three lost, next seven won, and the bottom four lost; the 2 clubs from the capital are in the dropseats right now.

21           for Clermont 10, Jake McIntyre on 7 sticksplitters against 15 for everyone else and badboy Lyon suffered its first defeat of the season, though they’ve yet managed to stay in ordering seat at table;

4              penalty goals for La Rochelle and only 2 for Racing 92 made for the 12 - 6 record;

2              groundings for Colombian lock, Andrés Zafra, aided the 27 - 14 victory for Agen over Stade Français;  

9              minutes is all it took for Bordeaux to be ticketed rouge and thereafter things went awry enabling Brive to rise from relegation station after completing 30 - 9 victory, and second-placed Bégles made no gain on losing Lyon;

11           the margin after ’80 as Toulon defended the Felix Mayol with a 20 - 9 win over Bayonne;

17           for Pau 10, Antoine Hastoy, on 4-and-3 from the tee and a brace for #2, Quentin Lespiaucq-Brettes, as home team beat Castres at Stade du Hameau, 37 - 24; 14 for traveling 10, Julien Dumora, on a 3-1-1 triple in defeat;

15           on account for Montpellier three-quarters, Anthony Bouthier, on 3-and-3 off his tee along with a double by 14, Gabriel Ngandebe, assisted the 33 - 22 joy past Toulouse as the giants battled;

Upcomes Round 9:
                Saturday, 11.9:
                                Toulon (18) v (17) Montpellier at Felix Mayol: each will have seven returned from international duty in this crucial mid-table clash;

                                Bayonne (21) v (17) Section Paloise at Stade Jean Dauger: homeboys need the win here;

                                Bordeaux Bègles (26) v (16) Agen at Chaban-Delmas: could be the bonus-point for Bègles;

                                Castres (14) v (17) Brive at Pierre-Fabre: should be a good lower-table tussle:

                                 Toulouse (20) v (14) Clermont at Ernest Wallon: tale of this tape may be whose internationals have returned to the roster in form;
                Sunday, 11.10:
                                 Stade Français (9) v (13) Racing 92 at the Jean Bouin: look to see differently-complected sides this time out and one to rise from their current relegation station;
                                Lyon (30) v (18) La Rochelle at Stade Gerland: homeboys’ll look for five here, but La Rochelais, who just managed to obtain the last playoff spot last weekend, will want to remain there;
