Castres was a good home team last season but they have some difficulites this season (draw against Lyon and Toulon, defeat against Racing Métro).. They are less strong than last year. Castres will miss its second row Murray until the end of the season. The other second row Koulemine is sick while Capo Ortega is doubtful.
Montpellier is the best team of Top 14 after Clermont and Toulouse. They are very impressive since the end of the World Cup. Indeed, they won 9 of their last 11 matches.. They can do something to Castres. The flanker Matadigo is out.
