Tarnais, which had 5 wins in 5 matches at home in the league this season, hosted the Catalans on Sunday, December 31 (14.00) at the end of the 11th day. They lost 17-13 in the last minute try scored by Blood and Gold with determination.
Let Pierre-Fabre remain the goal and Castres Olympique maintain its place in the top 6 in the rankings at the end of the year. Here are CO rugby players’ two big wishes for this final day of 2023:
On Sunday, 31 December, Tarnais hosted Perpignan at the end of the 11th day of the Top 14 (14:00). Gaëtan Barlot’s teammates were hoping to maintain their invincibility at the Pierre-Fabre stadium: 5 successes in 5 races in the Championship, as well as one in the European Challenge.
Castres were 6th in the standings with 28 points at kick-off. A ranking the club is confident of retaining at the end of this day After beating Stade Toulousain (7th, 27 points) in La Rochelle on Saturday 30th. We just need to start 2024 under good auspices.
Perpignans was the 13th and penultimate. But Castres were wary of the trap potentially set by these Caralans, buoyed by their final-day success against Bayonne.
