Brive 19 - 21 Bayonne

Just watched Aviron Bayonnais go up to the Top 14 with a last minute penalty from Bustos-Moyano. Cue absolute mayhem and repeated choruses of Pena Baiona...

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we drew Bayonne in our group again...!

Hope you don't mind me contributing, but I keep a keen eye on French rugby. Bayonne were a bit lucky in the error-strewn final and really should have lost 1 try (essai) to nil IMHO.
But now the losing finalists have a dog's chance for promotion as they play the 13th Top 14 team: last season the Pro D2 team won this match and were promoted.

Goes to show how much healthier French club rugby is with 2 fully professional divisions and not a gulf between them, compared to what we have here.

Update: Brive played Grenoble (13th in Top14) in the Top14 Access match....and won! So Brive and Bayonne promoted - you could play either next season.

Potentially sets up a mouth watering clash of Olding versus Jackson, possibly both as 10s.
