Massy vs Montauban by Sebmc
Montauban made an excellent start of the season and ranks ninth with 29 points. However, Montauban have two faces this season. A home, where they are almost irresistible (5 wins in 7 games) and away where they are much more sluggish (5 defeats in 6 games).
During their last visit, the Sapiacains won in Bourgoin 20-14. During this game, Bourgoin played awfull and made catastrophic mistakes.
Away, Montauban is used to lost with a big difference: -5 to Dax, -14 to Aurillac, -10 to Mont-de-Marsan, Colomiers -13, -14 to Agen.
For this meeting, Montauban will be handicapped because they will be without their regular hinge David Byrnes and Wesley Dunlop and the center Florent Domenech, the third line Keliti Vaingalo and prop Elvis Tekassala.
In addition, for this meeting, the coaches decided to put up a small turnover. In the first line, it is the usual substitutes who will start. Ladhuie, Agnesi and Tussac being on the bench. In the second line usual replacement Sergei Sergeyev. Also note that on the bench, there is no player capable to play 9 or 10.
Malié; Ascarat, Tupuola, Gillot-Jouannet Cazeaux; (0) Urruty (m) Chaput; Mamojele, A. Domenech, Giboin; Snyman, Sergeyev; Make, Lauga (cap), Philippart. On the bench: Ladhuie, Agnesi, Penalva, Barthère, Teulier, Tuifua, Ben Letaïef, Tussac.
Massy is thirteenth but saw his pursuers Dax and Bourgoin won yesterday. Parisians are very efficient at home. Their 24 points, they took 23 of their land.
The Massicois are five consecutive victories at home. In their last games in Maurice Lamarre, they easily won against Dax (50 to 13). They also often easily won at home: +14 against Narbonne, +10 vs Carcassonne, + 9 Béziers.
Massy has very strong forwards. Their back line is very fast with many islanders.
They had a problem of infirmary at the start of the season. Now, it's quite over. Indeed, only Chaplain, Dadunashvili, Rodrigues and Sagario are wounded.
I'm expecting that Massy will Montauban in scrum. In addition, the absence of montalbanaise hinge is a big blow as it is performing this season. I see Massy win by at least 10. An other good bet is Massy HT / Massy FT.
