Toulouse vs Stade Francais by Sebmc
Since the beginning of the season , Stade Toulousain alternate home wins with offensive bonus and away defeats . If in some matches of Stade Toulousain have been disappointing this season (litte victory 31-7 against the B team of Biarritz, defeat 25-0 in Montpellier) , there has been significant progress last week in Perpignan. While Guy Noves fielded a revamped team to kick off Toulouse have almost win and lost only 20-16 . Despite the absence of captain Thierry Dusautoir , the team fielded by Guy Noves tonight is impressive. The third line with Galan, Nyanga and Lamboley combines power and mobility , the second line Tekori - Maestri is one of the best duo of our league at this position. Playmaker McAlister will start as n°10 while At backs, there are very fast players like Medard,Huget, Fickou and Gear.
Le XV de départ: Médard ; Huget, Fritz, Fickou, Gear ; (o) McAlister, (m) Doussain ; Nyanga, Galan, Lamboley ; Tekori, Maestri ; Johnston, Tolofua, Ferreira.
Remplaçants: Montès, Van der Heever, Aldegheri, Millo Chluski, Picamoles, Bezy, David, Poitrenaud.
Stade Français start the season very well. They are first of Top 14. In its new Jean Bouin stadium, the team is undefeated and has beaten Montpellier and Clermont . Away, unlike previous years , Stade Français happens to glean points . They took the defensive bonus in Grenoble and won in Perpignan and Oyonnax . Castres is the only place where the French stage is returned with 0 point ( 38-10 defeat ) but the Parisians have sent a revamped team . Tonight coach Quesada make a little turnover. The star of the team , Sergio Parisse is not in the group as well as the French international Flanquart . The other international Antoine Burban will start on the bench as the main number 9 start Dupuy . Without its top players , the third line of the Stade Français may not be a match for his counterpart Toulouse . At backs the usual fullback Bonneval will play as winger. This is the Argentine Rodriguez Gurruchaga, who played just few times this season that will take his place .
Le XV de départ: Rodriguez Gurruchaga ; Bonneval, Danty, P. Williams, Camara ; (o) Plisson, (m) Fillol ; LaValla, Rabadan, Missoup ; Papé, Van Zyl ; Slimani, Sempéré, Van der Merwe.
Les remplaçants: De Malmanche, Attoub, Mostert, Burban, Dupuy, Doumayrou, Arias, Taulafo.
I expect a new big game of Toulouse . They have a better scrum and have better player at back. I think Toulouse are able to pick up the offensive bonus against the Parisian team that is slightly modified .
