Top 14: Toulon-La Rochelle and UBB-Racing 92 in the play-offs, all the information on the final phases

Top 14 Toulon La Rochelle and UBB Racing 92 in the play offs

Find the results and the ranking of the Top 14.

The last day of the Top 14 removed the last doubts concerning the posters for the play-offs and semi-finals of the championship. Winner at Jean Bouin against Toulon, Stade Français secured second place, endangered by their opponents in the evening, and avoided the play-offs by winning 23 to 20. The RCT finished fourth and will host La Rochelle at home on next week, in an atmosphere that promises to be festive for the return of the RCT to the final phase after six years of absence. The Rochelais actually finished fifth in the regular season by beating Racing 92 this Saturday at home 24-19.

The Ile-de-France club will also see the final stages of the top 14, but the Ciel-et-Blancs were very scared. Indeed, Castres’ victory in Bayonne gave Castres sixth place, until the 79th minute and Maxime Baudonne’s saving try synonymous with a defensive bonus and therefore qualification. Racing will travel next Saturday in the play-off in Bordeaux to face UBB, who secured their third place by easily winning 40-7 against Oyonnax, already relegated. Yannick Bru’s men, however, lost Matthew Jalibertout injured and likely forfeited for at least the play-offs next week.

Finally, Toulouse lost to LOU 40 to 28 with a team without any starters. Stade Toulouse was in fact already assured of finishing first in the championship, and played on the Lyon pitch.
