Top 14 Rugby Wash-Up Number 5

This week we talk about the Top 14 day 3 matches took place, which were catch-up matches for matches that were cancelled due to Covid-19 and look back at the third round of The 6 Nations tournament

In a week where Toulouse play La Rochelle at La Rochelle, where La Rochelle haven’t been beaten by any team for 2 years.

Toulouse are 2nd and La Rochelle hold the top spot in the Top 14 as we go into this week’s matches – will the order change or will La Rochelle strengthen their hold at the top?

Bayone are away to Toulon, after losing to Clermont 73 – 3, perhaps this is going to be a tough game for Bayonne… 

Listen to see what happened this weekend.

This week we talk about the Top 14 day 17 matches and look ahead to the third round of The 6 Nations tournament

In a week where Toulouse lost away to Lyon, there were highlights elsewhere in the Top 14 in France, including a thumping win for Clermont against Bayonne.

The top of the table has changed, but how long will it remain so?

Listen up for some of the highlights from the matches played this weekend.

OK, its the Six Nations in this podcast, not The Top 14

This week we talk about the second round matches in The 6 Nations tournament and

just a few words come to mind:

England: strategic cul de sac

Scotland : snowy

Wales: grind out

Ireland: top of the morning

France: week in, week out

Italy: keep on in there…

Today we are starting a new weekly podcast about The Top 14 French rugby.

We always chat about the happenings and comings and goings in the Top 14, so we have decided to do a podcast about it, at least during the rugby season.

We can’t go to watch rugby matches – it has been over a year since I last saw my favourite local team Stade Toulousain and I can’t wait to go back and be in the atmosphere of a rugby match.

But for now, we will just have to watch it on tv and chat about it afterwards.

This weekend we will see the opening matches of the 6 nations championship, so we may have something to talk about next week, but for now, these are my highlights from last week’s Top 14 rugby matches.

If you’re a non-native English language listener you might like to try the comprehension quiz to help with understanding.

How complicated is all this?

Just as a way of looking at how the changes could have affected the 2016 6 Nations tournament.

This is how it would have been if the new points system had been in place.

And this is how the tournament finished.

The point of the new system is to encourage attacking play, which should give a better experience for the viewers.
