Oyonnax vs Clermont Auvergne by Sebmc
Clermont has 3 injured hookers. So, they took Van Der Westhuizen, that will play its first game today. The youngster Rude will replace him during the game. Clermont is also without two number 9. They have only youngsters.
For this game, the coachs decided to make a turnover and made 8 replacements compared to the last game.
The front row seems weak and will lack of automatism. Kotze has always big difficulties in scrum.
Scrum-half Bruzulier will play his first TOP 14 game. The back line will lack of automatism with two usual wings who will play as center: Gear – Vulivuli. I’m not sure that they will defend correctly. Bench is light with lots of youngsters except some key players like Jedresiak, Domingo and Stanley
Oyonnax start with a loss to Montpellier 35-19. Last week, they won easily against Bordeaux 37-19 with the offensive bonus.
This team is very aggressive and rely on very fast wings (Codjo and Tian) and a very efficient kicker (Robinson).
For this game, the coaches put the same team except Jenneker who is injured. This is a big blow because he is one of the best hooker of Top 14.
Oyo by at least 5 points.
|Oyonnax||William Hill||1.67||7||24-41 LOST (-7 units)|
