Top 14 Multiplex Tops / Flops: Beheregaray sees triple, Racing still disappoints


The top names, little ones struggling, a new defeat for Racing… Find out what caught the editorial staff's attention after the four matches this Saturday afternoon.


Beheregaray, the pass of three with Clermont

Inconstant this season, ASM was reassured before the start of the European Cup. The Jaunards, who had been transparent and amorphous in Perpignan (26-24) last week, put things back in order against Biarritz, the other promoted (39-11). Solid and well placed, Jono Gibbes' players scored six tries by Ravai (5th), Penaud (51st), Hanrahan (77th) and a hat-trick from Beheregaray (13th, 40th, 46th). Three strength tests for the usual hooker replacing the Jaunards, behind Étienne Falgoux and Adrien Pélissié, both injured. The last hooker to have scored a hat-trick in the Top 14 was Rochelais Pierre Bourgarit, in January against Agen. Clermont returned his head to the place before the start of the continental games. Auspicious before receiving the Northern Irish from theUlster then to move to Sale in the Champions Cup.

Montpellier received 5/5

The Héraultais on their momentum.

After a sluggish start to the year, the MHR found the right cruising speed and chained, Saturday against Perpignan (30-6), a fifth success in a row.

Philippe Saint-André's players have not lost since mid-October.

Before the international break, they had signed three victories, they have added two more since the resumption.

Will the great dynamic continue in the European Cup?

The program is very extensive with a trip to Exeter and the reception of Leinster.

Very heavy.

The LOU (re) shows the fangs

Dominated last week in Toulon (18-13), the Lyonnais did not tremble this Saturday to bend Brive (41-0).

More powerful ahead, in the wake of the Taofifeniua brothers, more inspired in attack, the Rhodaniens never let go of their grip on the Corréziens, quickly overtaken at Gerland.

Well installed in the top 6, the LOU will be able to devote himself fully to the European Cup from next week, welcoming the English from Gloucester and then moving to Newport to challenge the Welsh Dragons.


New disappointment for Racing 92 defeated in Castres

The Heavens and Whites in suffering. After its huge disappointment against Union Bordeaux-Bègles who had come to win at the Arena (14-37), Racing chained a second defeat, losing logically at the Pierre-Fabre stadium against Castres. Before launching its campaign in the Champions Cup (at Northampton, then against the Ospreys), the 92 club had made a large rotation and could not compete with the aggressiveness of the CO, who won the offensive bonus at the end of match thanks to a try from Dumora (80th + 2). More worrying for Ile-de-France residents, their cruel lack of lucidity and efficiency, failing to materialize several highlights. Castres, for its part, ends the year 2021 by being undefeated at home (13 wins, one draw). Racing, already beaten twice this season in its Arena,cannot say the same… The Ciel et Blancs are only 8th in the standings.

The "little ones" did not confirm

A week after jostling the Stade Toulousain at Ernest-Wallon (18-11), Brive had to rub shoulders with another big piece, Lyon. And the Coujous did not manage to be sharp against the LOU (41-0). Pierre Mignoni's players made the difference during the first act, scoring by Ngatai (25th) and Barassi (39th), before driving the point home with Saginadze (70th) and Berdeu's boot. At the same time, Perpignan, which had managed to bring down Clermont (26-24), was more saddened on the lawn of Montpellier this Saturday. After a rough start to the match, the Catalans had managed to contain the assaults of the Hérault (6-6 at the break), before giving in when the locker room returned. More incisive, the Montpellier residents quickly scored two tries after returning from the locker room by Rattez (46th), Lucas (48th) and Eymeri (77th).In addition, Biarritz, the red lantern, was corrected in Clermont (39-11). In the fight for maintenance, these three teams make a bad operation in the standings, before the matches of Pau against Toulon (this Saturday at 5 p.m.) and of the Stade Français Paris against the Stade Rochelais, Sunday (9:05 p.m.).
