Castres vs Leinster by Serialtips
Rugby, Europe, H-Cup
Pool Stage, Round 5.
Leinster is coming to Castres with the ambition to win in order to keep its first place of this group.
The staff puts of course the best team of the moment, and almost all the key players are here except Sean O'Brien, so we have a strong team for Leinster with many irish international players.
On the opposite side, Castres has few chances to qualify for quarter-finals and the interesting thing is that there are couple of key players who won't be here, this is the case of Rory Kockott, best player of the year last season in top 14, but also strong prop Taumoepeau and flanker Claassen.
The team is less strong without those players, we can see that in the last results of the team with a loss in Grenoble and a very short win at home against Bordeaux-Bègles.
For the first leg at home, Leinster beat Castres by 12 points.
Knowing that Castres is missing 3 of its best players now and knowing that there is the qualification for quarter-finals in stake for Leinster, I think that they will win once again.
But I will try their win by less than 13 points because we rarely see a top french team losing at home by a big margin.
