Mont-de-Marsan wants to make up for it. The Montois were defeated in the last minutes on the lawn of Sapiac last week, and came out of this meeting frustrated, even if they finally retained their first place in the standings. With the return of players like Léo Coly and Willie Du Plessis, the revengeful Landais could spend their nerves on Nevers this Thursday. Held in check by Grenoble last Friday, Xavier Péméja’s men are far from favorites.

Our prognosis: victory for Mont-de-Marsan with the offensive bonus.

They also defeated by a short margin last week, on the ground of Rouen, the Oyomen advance all the same in confidence to Charles-Mathon, when it comes to facing Béziers. Joe El Abd’s players have recently largely won against Mont-de-Marsan and Montauban at home and could continue to impose their law on synthetic turf. Facing them are Biterrois on a very good dynamic after success in Grenoble and against Colomiers.

Our prognosis: Oyonnax victory.

Narbonne still hasn’t won at home! A finding more than worrying whereas it is the ogre bayonnais which is expected at the Parc des Sports et de l’Amitié this Friday. Under the threat of Agen and especially Vannes in the standings, the Audois must achieve the feat. But the Basques, sure of their strength, should not give the Orange a chance. Thus, the Sky and White have the favor of our forecasts.

Our prognosis: victory for Bayonne with the offensive bonus.

Vannes regains control. The great success against Agen breathed new life into Brittany. Last week, the Vannetais went for a nice draw on the lawn of Carcassonne and now receive the promoted Bressan. The Violet come out of a major success in front of Narbonne and will have less pressure for this trip à la Rabine. In a hooked encounter, we give the locals an advantage.

Our prognosis: victory for Vannes.

They are the first to have lost in Armandie for more than two years. The Aurillacois bowed to Agen after however four successes in a row. They will want to raise their heads directly against Provence Rugby this Friday. But the Aixois, who are the most unpredictable team in the championship, could make a blow in Cantal. Despite a big defeat in Bayonne last week, we see them hang and put the Cantalous in difficulty.

Our prognosis: victory for Provence, defensive bonus for Aurillac.

Can Agen confirm following the victory against Aurillac, the first after 34 unsuccessful matches? Possible, but the Agenais do not have the favor of our forecasts. On the lawn of Carcassonne, the Lot-et-Garonnais could drop ballast against Audois eager for victory. The draw conceded against Vannes last week did not help the Canaries, who are therefore vengeful.

Our prognosis: victory for Carcassonne, defensive bonus for Agen.

Fallen to the leader from Mons, Montauban has a second consecutive game in his den of Sapiac, where he remains undefeated this season. USM welcomes Rouen, recent winner of Oyonnax, this Friday. Despite significant absences like those of Jérôme Bosviel, the Montalbanais start favorites for this meeting. Fourth in the standings, they could come back to the top of the standings if successful.

Our prognosis: victory for Montauban.

Real shock of this ninth day, the meeting between Grenoble and Colomiers promises to be exciting, with two teams who do not hesitate to open the game. Reliable at home, the Grenoblois will have a hard time facing this Colomiers. The Hauts-Garonnais lost their second game of the season, once again in the dying seconds and will want to wash away this affront. We see them do a big blow at the Stade des Alpes.

Our prognosis: victory for Colomiers, defensive bonus for Grenoble.
