Cant find last years thread, but i suppose we need a new one anyways.
Aviva not starting yet but the top14 has and surprising, had 3 away wins at the weekend.
The more exeter, bayonne and la rochelle struggle in the league, the less interested they will be in the Challenge Cup. The losing bonus point has changed in the Top14, its now down to 5 points or less.
good news for us, both bayonne and la rochelle lost. neither getting a losing bonus point.

Round 2
Toulon 60-19 La Rochelle
Bayonne 38-12 Oyonnax

So 2 loses for La Rochelle coming into today vs an inform Toulouse team. Match is live on sky sports 3, kick off at 13.45.
chance to have a look at Stade Marcel-Deflandre.

Bayonne got a win vs Oyonnax last week but Castre should be too strong for them today.

Round 3
La Rochelle vs Toulouse
Castres vs Bayonne
