Click here to Watch Castres v Grenoble Live Saturday 24th October 12:00 GMT
Two clubs who are looking for some consistency in this seasons Top 14 Orange tournament clash at the Stade Pierre Antoine on Saturday, when Castres host Grenoble from the Alps. Castres' two wins this season have both come in their home stadium, against Toulon and Oyonnax. They will expect to make that three form three against Grenoble, who have lost both of their away matches to date, against Clermont and Racing 92, neither of which is a disgrace, as Clermont are the unbeaten table leaders, and Racing have lost just one game so far.
Castres were beaten last weekend when they travelled to the Champions, Stade Français, who were desperate for a win to drag themselves away from the foot of the table. A dour game saw Castres go down by 9-22, conceding only a single try, but failing to register one themselves.
For Grenoble, whose home form is so vital to their ambitions of remaining a Top 14 club, last week's home defeat against Montpellier was a severe blow. Even given that Montpellier are in second place in the table, behind only the unbeaten Clermont side, a try count of 1-3 was disappointing to the Alpine based club, and the final margin of 19-30 failed to offer even the consolation of a bonus point.

On Saturday, the 25th of August, the Top 14 Orange continues with Castres taking on Grenoble in Castres at 18:30 local time and 16:30 GMT. Castres will come in at ninth right now after just one game played. That is the case with all of the teams so far, and what it means is that the teams will be shuffling around the board for the next few weeks, and that a spot will probably not last. Castres has taken ninth right now, but odds are that will change after the very next match. They lost their first game, and were only able to earn a single point.
As for Grenoble, they take the spot between Toulouse and Bordeaux in seventh right now. Grenoble was able to win the first game that they played, so they get four points for their troubles and the current leader of the table is Biarritz.
