With Toulon, Clermont and Toulouse now in third, fourth and fifth the table is starting look more recognisable. There is still a big gap up to Bordeaux and Lyon in first and second though as we get to the halfway point of the season.

Agen and Stade are at the opposite end looking down the barrel of relegation. They need a couple of wins soon or they’ll be too far gone to catchup.
Here are my Top 14 Round 13 Predictions:
Home wins for Montpellier, Pau and Toulon are easy to pick as their opposition haven’t won an away game all season. Then Bordeaux are perfect at home so another easy pick.
Racing are a team that have just got over their Rugby World Cup hangover. We can see that from three wins in their last 4 Top14 games. So I’m backing them against Clermont.
For the away wins it’s basically the bottom two teams that are hosting. At the end of the day there’s a reason why they are the bottom two teams.
|Agen v Lyon||Lyon by 3|
|Racing 92 v Clermont Auvergne||Racing 92 by 5|
|Bordeaux Begles v Bayonne||Bordeaux Begles by 10|
|Montpellier v Brive||Montpellier by 7|
|Pau v La Rochelle||Pau by 5|
|Toulon v Castres||Toulon by 7|
|Stade Francais v Toulouse||Toulouse by 5|
I’m 53 from 84 or 63% so far this season.
