This is one of the big match of the round between Stade Français (2nd) and champions 2013 Castres (3rd).
It will probably be a big fight of forwards and fight of kickscoring, even more with the small rain probable on Paris tonight.
Both teams have great kickscorer with Kockott for Castres and Morné Steyn for Stade Français.
But I think that the pack of forwards will win the fight, especially on scrum and line out.
Because, the interesting thing for this round is that many international players won't play because they are in stage with their national teams in order to prepare the beginning of 6 Nations tournament next week.
This is the case of the 23 french international players who are going to play against England. And among them, there are 4 forwards of Stade Français, so this is simple, Stade Français will play tonight without half of its usual pack of forwards and some of them like Pascal Papé or Antoine Burban are unsubstitutable too my mind.
While on the opposite side, the substituted players of french international players of Castres have same level too my mind, except the one who is substituting Claassen.
Moreover great prop Taumoepeau is finally back on the line-up for Castres.
So, I think that this is a good chance for Castres to do something in Paris, and then I expect them to take at least the defensive bonus point by losing by less than 8 points.
