The upcoming assembly with the Soyaux membership, which has recorded six defeats in a row, will probably be a chance for Biterrois to proceed its march in the direction of the highest six of the championship. For his or her half, Provence has a gathering with Mont-de-Marsan and should pull off a feat to deliver down the present Professional D2 second on their house turf.
Massy can consider it

Julien Maréchal’s defensively critical males made the distinction within the second act, particularly an excellent entry from Gaëtan Pichon, the creator of two makes an attempt.
These 4 factors are greater than precious to Massy as they hold Massicois from being unhooked within the relegation race. After the loss to Soyaux-Angoulême, notably on the wire, the Blues and Blacks come solely a small level from Charentais and eight factors away from first place with out relegation: Montauban.

After Mont-de-Marsan, Agen, it is Nevers who triumphs at La Rabine and offers an enormous blow to the Vannetais, who went from podium contenders to a crew stuffed with doubts and past the highest six. Nevers, this historic success permits Nivernais to hold up a very good wagon and as soon as once more turn into a contender for the highest six.
Blissful victors colonists
Within the conflict between first and second after which between third and fourth, Colomiers might pull off a wonderful operation of the day. Finished, the pigeon membership gained with a rating of 25-21 within the Charente towards a crew that has not gained for the reason that finish of November 2022. If the Occitanie membership proved a number of inaccuracies within the recreation and some factors on the best way to the foot, they used a thunderous return from the locker room with two makes an attempt in speedy succession to show the tables.
If Angoulême managed to reverse the development, Colomiers handed the siren take a look at to safe a precious success. With this victory, Colomiers will get nearer to the Professional D2 podium. Due to this fact, it is going to be obligatory to substantiate at house subsequent weekend towards Montauban in an effort to hope to climb one of many steps on the prime of the standings. For its half, the membership coached by Vincent Etcheto continues to be heading a bit extra in the direction of relegation.
Carcassonne gives itself a breath of contemporary air:
The folks of the Metropolis supply themselves a precious success at house within the wrestle for a residing.

Agen all the time extra critical
Agen very clearly appears to be like like a critical underdog in Professional D2 this season. The Agenais continued their status success this Friday with a win over Biarritz in Armandie (27-17). Whereas SUA have struggled to remain constant at house for the reason that starting of the season, this win makes quite a lot of sense, particularly when you already know it permits Bernard Goutta’s males to climb onto the rostrum simply forward of Colomiers.
