Duel of bottom teams.
LOU remains on two consecutive wins against Clermont and the Stade français. Nevertheless, it needs to be put into perspective. Indeed, Lyon was very poor and faced two mixed teams. Against Clermont, they had to wait until the last second of the game to score the try synonymous with the victory while Clermont was without lots of key players and some youngsters. Lyon struggled in scrum and was unable to make a difference with its backline.
Against the Stade Français, Parisians had also made many changes to their starting XV. Quesada's men played 14 vs 15 during more than 50 minutes after the red card of Steyn in the first half. Despite this, Lyon was unable to widen the gap and won only by 3. Despite quite a big name in forwards, Lyon had many difficulties in scrum and recede almost every impact.
Axay, Lyon have often lost heavily: 29-10 in La Rochelle, 43-12 in Clermont, 28-11 Racing, 30-6 in Toulon ..
For this match, Lyon has changed its entire front row compared to the last two games. Best tryscorer Arnold is absent. In the back row, Ghezal replace Leguizamon and Lorée takes the place of januarie as scrum-half.
Bayonne remains on two defeats away against direct rivals. This places the Basques in the red zone. At home, Bayonne has 5 wins and two losses and often won easily: 38-12 vs Oyonnax, 23-6 vs Brive vs Toulouse 35-19, 24-13 vs Clermont.
For this match, Bayonne will rely on its number 8 Olivon, who missed the last two games. He is one of the best number 8 of TOP 14. The team fielded is very powerful and will cause big problems to Lou in scrum.
Bayonne will have two target: winning without letting the defensive bonus to Lyon. Of course, the will look for the offensive bonus. I think that they can do it !
