So far this season in the Top 14 9 games have been postponed due to covid. However they solider on.
So here are my predictions but who knows how many of the games will actually go ahead.

Here are my Top 14 Round 10 Predictions:
Some of these games are easy to call and it’s just a matter of by how much. So La Rochelle, Toulon and Toulouse are easy picks.
Lyon and Racing 92 should be easy picks but they have been up and down. Also their opposition have picked up away wins this season as well.
That leaves Montpellier and Castres. Montpellie have had a couple of good home victories recently but against bottom of the table opposition. Bordeaux though haven’t been great away from home.
Again initially you’d go with Clermont over Castres until you see they have only won once on the road this season. But then Castres only have 1 home win. If you look closer though those 2 home losses were only by 1 and 6 points. Maybe going against the grain with Castres but we’ll see.
7 home wins, well that matches the Top 14 rule of “go with the home team”….
|La Rochelle v Brive||La Rochelle by 7|
|Castres v ASM Clermont Auvergne||Castres by 3|
|Toulon v Pau||Toulon by 10|
|Montpellier v Bordeaux Begles||Montpellier by 3|
|Toulouse v Agen||Toulouse by 10|
|Racing 92 v Bayonne||Racing 92 by 3|
|Lyon v Stade Francais||Lyon by 5|
Record So Far
Over all I’m 39 from 56 or 70%, not great if we’re going to be honest but still good enough for top 10% on Superbru. Goes to show how hard the Top 14 is to predict.
