THE PREDICTION

La Rochelle have not played a Top 14 match since the opening weekend of the year and have dropped down to second in the table as a result, though with a game in-hand on Toulouse. They have been granted a useful home fixture by the rugby Gods to get themselves back into the swing of things as they host Bayonne, who came off the worse in an exciting 22-23 tussle at home to Pau last time out. The visitors own the second-worst points difference in the league, and that is with two games in-hand over most other teams, so this could end up a thrashing. La Rochelle can enjoy this one as they look to reassert themselves at the top of the league on Friday night before their challengers play and they can cover -20 in doing so.
