Newly promoted La Rochelle may be bottom but one of this seasons Top 14 Orange table after five rounds but they are showing some fine form at their own Stade Marcel Deflandre ground, where they have already beaten Toulouse and Castres this season.

Last week they crushed last season's losing finalists Castres by 41-16, to change places at the bottom of the table with their vanquished opponents. Their problems come when they are on the road, where they have yet to pick up a single point. They will either have to improve that form, or continue to produce outstanding performances at home, if they wish to extend their stay in the Top 14 beyond the end of the current season.

Although Saturday's visitors, Union Bordeaux Begles are riding high in fifth place in the Top 14 standings, following a hard fought 27-21 victory over Montpellier at Stade Chaban-Delmas, they have lost both games that they have played away from home.  

Bordeaux were helped by a poorly disciplined Montpellier outfit, which allowed Pierre Bernard opportunities to kick 17 points, including two late penalties after the 67th minute sin binning of Montpellier wing Rene Ranger.

La Rochelle will probably be confident enough in front of their own fans, to pick up another vital win.
