Montauban v Carcassonne
Away Win +21 (Handicap 3-Way) @ 1.900 4/10 Bet365
Rugby Union / Other / Kick off: 17 Aug 2018, 20:00
First day of Pro D2 this Friday night.
Montauban cannot count on its recruits tonight because the DNACG has not validated the contracts. The former aurillacois, Maninoa, Luatua and Lilomaiva will go to Louis Fajrowski’s funeral and will not play. The team has not changed much in terms of departures. Tupuola is the only usual starter who has left the club. Montauban aligns a solid XV but with a bench a little weak.
Carcassonne was safe last year thanks to a great end to the season. Many players have left like Bettencourt, Lazzarotto, Tison, Civil, … But the club recruited well. Castrais Wihongi in prop, Manchia in lock, Barba and Méité in 3rd row, … Josh Valentine isn’t here but the team is competitive. There’s a big bench.
I don’t see a big gap on this game. I take Cacarcassonne with handicap.
