Here are my Top 14 Round 13 Predictions:

An easy pick first up to go with Bordeaux as Toulon’s only away win was against Agen (the side that haven’t won a game all season). So go home win.

Since Toulouse have had their internationals back they have been on a winning run. Montpellier haven’t shown enough this season to suggest they’ll stop this juggernaut.

The New Zealand Sport Radio podcast is available on SpotifyiTunesiHeartRadioAcast and many more podcatchers.

As I said before Agen haven’t won a game all season and as they are hosting the table toppers it’s looking like a big loss at home.

Bayonne v Pau is a tough one to call. I think it’ll come down to a couple of points either way. After a run of 4 losses by just a score Pau won last weekend. That will do the world of good for their moral and is the kind of thing that can turn a season. Add to that Bayonne have lost a couple on the bounce but they have been half decent at home.

Lyon should win at home, the only reason that I’ve gone for a small margin is that they tend to win by small margins. I can’t see Casters winning though.

Brive are on a run of 3 wins but 2 of those are against the bottom 2 teams in the league. Stade might have lost last weekend but they should bounce back at home. Again I’ve gone by a small margin as that’s been the result in Stades last 3 games.

Clermont v Racing is the game of the round, Clermont have lost their last 2 games however they are at home and they are a better side than their record suggests. Racing will give everyone a good game either home or away but I think they’ll come up short this weekend.

Bordeaux Begles v Toulon Bordeaux Begles by 5 
Montpellier v Toulouse Toulouse by 5 
Agen v La Rochelle La Rochelle by 15 
Bayonne v Pau Bayonne by 3 
Lyon v Castres Lyon by 5 
Stade Francais v Brive Stade Francais by 2 
ASM Clermont Auvergne v Racing 92 ASM Clermont Auvergne by 5 

Record So Far

Over all I’m 52 from 76 or 68%, not great however this COVID interrupted season is proving to be difficult to pick (well for me at least).
