    Montauban v Clermont
    Date: Sunday 19 October 2008
    Venue: Stade Sapiac
    Kickoff - 16:00, Live FR2

    So Montauban nearly created the shock of the weekend at Thomond Park last weekend with their second string side, it'll be interesting to see whether that losing bonus point will convince the Montuaban management to go for a full strength side against what could possibly be a second string Clermont side should they already see their campaign as over following their defeat to Sale.

    Given it's their first home Heineken Cup game I'd imagine that Montauban will be more than up for this and could well take the win regardless of the side that Clermont put out as 13 wins from 14 last season at home would suggest, although Toulouse did make easy work of their trip there this season.

    All too easy for Clermont there, Montuaban failing to take their own lineout ball and from the resulting play a try in the corner for Nalaga. James adds the extras.

    Well, not so easy game for Clermont in fact, they are playing with fire...

    Feeling worry for them this season, will hard find their place in H cup, but also risk not to be in the fourth first before the final phases of Top 14. Still a lot of excellent indivilualities, but something is disconnected in the chain.

    More generally, feel the same for Toulouse, which burn an incredible energy on each match, and need forceps for any victory.

    ah bugger. Really thought Montaoubon were gonna win this one. Time for irrelivant quote.

    In light of that, at least it keeps the group interesting with Ckermont still in touch. Who has the fist home match in the back to backs? Munster or Clermont?

    Poor Montauban can't catch a break, can they? Definite potential banana-skin when Munster and Sale visit though...
