Mid-table Castres welcome Toulon to their Stade Pierre Antoine home ground in the opening fixture of Round 12 in the French Top 14 tournament on Saturday. Castres have won five and drawn one of their 11 fixtures to date, securing a total of 25 points, which sees them sit in eighth position in the table. All five of Castres victories have come on home soil, with a solitary defeat at the Stade Pierre-Antoine coming against La Rochelle by 18-26 back in Round 3. Against a Toulon side that is missing so many of its first choice XV, due to the Autumn international series, they will fancy their chance of extending that fine home record.

Toulon rose back to the top of the table last weekend, when they smashed Grenoble 61-28 at Stade Mayol, combined with Clermont's slightly surprising defeat at Bayonne. In contrast to their visitors, Toulon have won seven matches in the Top 14, and have accumulated more than twice as many points, with 33 in total, and a two point advantage over Clermont. With all their three wins this season coming at home, and with Toulon hit by international calls, Castres might just have the ingredients to post a major shock on Saturday, and at the same time lift themselves out of the relegation zone.
