Bayonne are still clinging to the faintest of hopes that they might yet extricate themselves from the mess that they are in at the foot of the Top 14 Orange table. On Saturday they welcome PAU to the Stade Jean Dauger in Bayonne, rooted firmly to the bottom of the ladders, with just 20 points to their credit after 18 fixtures. Leaving them a full 13 points from safety, with only eight fixtures left during the regular season in which to save themselves. Just one win in their last six Top 14 matches however, hardly suggests that they are about to launch an amazing turnaround in fortunes to climb to safety.
PAU who visit on Saturday, are themselves chasing glory towards the top end of the standings. Lying in sixth position ahead of this weekend's round of fixtures, they have 10 wins and 46 points to their own credit. Although they occupy a play-off spot, PAU's position is quite precarious, and a victory at hapless Bayonne would give their cause a huge boost. Pau being just one point ahead of the reigning Champions, Racing 92. By the same token however, PAU are only four points off of third placed Montpellier.
