Toulouse meet Castres in Round 10 of the French Top 14 tournament on Saturday at the Stade Ernest Wallon in Toulouse. With a record of five wins and four defeats in the Top 14 this season, and a total of 23 points, Toulouse currently sit in fifth position in the table. They trail the leaders Clermont Auvergne by nine points after nine rounds of the competition, and with Clermont due to play at home to Grenoble on Saturday, Toulouse will be anxious to claim a win against Castres that will prevent them losing even more ground on the leaders.

The five previous Top 14 Orange home games that they have played this season, have brought four victories. The only reverse was in Round 4 by 15-32 against Toulon. Castres are in ninth position in the table, and have collected 20 points. Their problem is undoubtedly a weakness away from home. Four away fixtures in the Top 14 have ended in three defeats, since that shared the points in a 12-12 draw with Bayonne in Round 2. With the fewest points they have conceded in any of those losses, being the 28 that Montpellier scored against them in Round 8.

It would be no surprise if defences held sway at the Stade Ernest Wallon on the weekend, when second place Toulouse come face to face with Castres, who currently sit in fourth spot in the table. Toulouse, with more French titles to their name than any other club, made an atrocious start to last season, flirting with the relegation zone at one time, which meant that they were always playing catch up on their rivals. They eventually made the play-offs, but never really looked like title contenders. They haven’t made the same mistake in the new campaign.

Consecutive wins in the opening two weeks, has placed them in second position, and they are one of only three clubs with 100% winning records. Just as impressive is that their line has only been crossed once, during wins against Brive, and then away to newly promoted Agen last weekend. Castres themselves looked as if they may well be relegated last season, before finding just enough in the tank over the final weeks to drag themselves out of the relegation zone. They too have conceded just a solitary try so far, while losing narrowly at Bordeaux in Week 1, before they recorded a fine win against Toulon last weekend at the Stade Pierre-Antoine, collecting a try-scoring bonus point into the bargain.

Last seasons Top 14 Orange beaten finalist Castres made a disappointing start to the new season, as they seek to make a third consecutive final at the Stade de France. Beaten at the Stade de la Mediterranee, Béziers last week by Stade Francais, they now face the task of taking on the Top 14's biggest spenders on Friday night, Toulouse at the near impregnable Stade Ernest Wallon. The 22-25 defeat by Stade ended an unbeaten home record that stretched back over a season. A topsy turvy contest saw the visitors open up an 11-3 lead, before ill discipline saw the boot of Geoffrey Palis ease the home side into a 12-11 advantage by half time. The lead was to change twice more, before Camara grabbed the decisive score to give the Parisians a perfect start to the season. Toulouse, with ex-England fly-half Toby Flood making a memorable debut. Sneaked a narrow 20-19 home win against Oyonnax in week 1.

Flood scored all 20 points for his team, with a try after eight minutes and penalties, including the last minute kick that denied the visitors a famous victory. Both Toulouse and Castres performed well below their best last weekend, and a repeat showing on Friday by either side will surely lead to defeat.
