Top 14 - Round 5 WRap


Round 5 Wrap

Home Happy: Brive, Bayonne, Castres, Toulouse;
Road Warriors: Clermont, Lyon;
Sis-Kiss: Bordeaux-Montpellier

Lyon the only club with a pristine record after the initial handful of matches. T14 will see some of its internationals return in the next fortnight as 2019 RWC pool play completes and the players from nations that don’t make the quarterfinals will be back in their club shirts. Both clubs from Paris occupy relegation stations just now... only 8-from-35, or less than 23%, of matches won by travelers thus far this season.
