Last year, the club of La Rochelle was eliminated in the play-offs, against Toulouse. The 2022 – 2023 edition of the TOP 14 allowed the Maritimes to clinch a place in the semifinals, without going through the qualifying event. Indeed, La Rochelle finished the season in second place in the standings, with 78 points. For its part, UBB finished in sixth position, behind Racing 92. Union Bordeaux-Bègles played in the play-offs and won against Lyon, with a score of 25 to 32. Now, Stade Bordeaux is back in the semi-final of the TOP 14, a stage at which the club was ousted the previous season. It is therefore a high-stakes match that awaits both teams. The winner will get their ticket to the final, held at the Stade de France on June 17. As a reminder, the last confrontation between La Rochelle and Stade Bordeaux ended in favor of the Maritimes (6-36).
