Last week-end was played the T14 first round:

Biarritz v Clermont 29-24
Stade Français v Montpellier 52-20
Albi v Bayonne 24-12
Montauban v Narbonne 41-20
Perpignan v Castres 20-16
Agen v Bourgoin 18-6
Brive v Toulouse 9-24

The Paris team although ridiculous in their new pink jerzey was quite impressive.

I saw the Biarritz-Clermont game repeated on Setanta. I was impressed by Clermont.

I watched it on Canal+ they were good in the first half, dutring the second half when they played against the wind, Biarritz controlled the game more effictively. Their forwards dominated their Clermont counterparts.

The Canadian international players I've seen this last week-end are Mike James (with a funny moustache) and Cudmore who has been cited by Biarritz. He intentionaly hits Betsen in the face with his elbow in a ruck.

I saw Toulouse and Biarritz on Sunday. When did Biarritz get so bad? They're seriously in danger of falling out of title contention already.

They started training later than the other big guns, they should peak later. Last season they were a bit in trouble when the season started too. Otherwise if they follow playing like last sunday teams like Clermont, Perpignan or Bourgoin should be above them in the league table in addition of course to Paris and Toulouse and then they would not qualify for the SF.

Paris had a new and quite original jerzey for their game versus Bayonne:

Well this is the Paris team only which have they unusual jerzeys. This is a way to create buzz and interest. They are quite successful actualy both outside the pitch and inside, they are leading the league at that point in time.

Next saturday there will be the clash of the Stades in Toulouse, it should be great Rugby.

i know they look like gays with their pink jersey ... but its only an appearance !!! they have a monstruous bench this year.
