THE PREDICTION

Castres lost 29-10 away at La Rochelle last Saturday for their second successive defeat on the road but otherwise they have started the new Top 14 season remarkably well and they remain unbeaten at home. This looks a comfortable home tie to continue that trend as they welcome bottom-of-the-league Biarritz. The visitors have grabbed some huge wins at home this season to Bordeaux and racing 92 but a 5-40 humbling there last Saturday by Lyon was their third defeat on the spin and a sign that the Top 14 could prove more difficult than at first glance. Biarritz have lost their two away fixtures this season by 13 points at Perpignan and by 42 at La Rochelle. Splitting the difference makes Castres to cover -20 look a reasonable outcome here.
