The XV de la Rose coach spent the morning at Lévézou, then left with the CO, direction Montpellier. Eddie Jones is close to Castres manager Pierre Henri Broncan, whom he knew when the Gersois was coaching in England. Castres general manager Matthias Rolland welcomed Australian coach who won South Africa to the wire last weekend at home.

The CO, therefore well accompanied, moves to the MHR, this Saturday, on behalf of the 11th day of Top 14.
