Biarritz relegated to Pro D2, Bayonne promoted back to Top 14. Perpignan v Mont-de-Marsan in the playoff for the final spot in 22/23 Top 14.

Castres finished top seeds and will play Toulouse/La Rochelle in the playoffs. Montpellier were second seeds and will play Bordeaux/Racing 92.
Backed Castres and Brive to win away only to ruin my trebble for failing to beat the Toulouse handicap - they even took their half backs off early!

I think +42 was exactly what they needed in the end for the home barrage, but with the beauty of simultaneous kickoffs, not even the bookies would have known that.

Handling poor.
Set pieces poor (CO's worse than poor)
Kicking from hand poor.
Place kicking poor.

One way traffic in final, Montpellier 23-3 up. Don't think Castres actually left the changing room in that 1st half.

Defence is good. I suppose, but both sides are happy to make the tackle and regroup. Very few rucks.
