5 Players To Watch Top 14 Round Two

5 Players To Watch Top 14 Round Two

Round two of the Top14 gets underway this evening with 5 games coming your way. 


We have highlighted 5 players to keep an eye on in what will be an exciting round of action. 

Julian Savea - Toulon

Starting from the bench, Toulon's latest All Black Julian Savea will surely make a big impact when a few Pau will be looking to catch their breath.

The former Hurricanes flyer is joined by fellow All Blacks Liam Messam and Malakai Fekitoa in the side with the latter starting in an unfamiliar position out wide.

Savea was in stellar form for the Hurricanes at the end of the Super Rugby season and will want to maintain that form with his new side.

Scott Spedding - Castres

Spedding was in superb form in the opening match of the season scoring two tries as he inspired his side to a rare win over Montpellier away from home.

The South African-born France international has repaid Castres' faith in him after it was confirmed that he will not be recognised as a JIFF qualified player.

Johan Goosen - Montpellier

Goosen makes his second appearance for Montpellier tonight after starting at fullback in the opening game against Castres.

The Springbok playmaker looked sharp in the first game but will look to kick on and inspire his side to their first win of the season.

Goosen starts the game at flyhalf while La Rochelle have welcomed back flanker Kevin Gourdon who will surely be all over the place.

Afaesetiti Amosa - Bordeaux Begles 

Bordeaux have handed Semi Radradra and Eto Nabuli their first starts of the season tonight but we have identified Amosa as the man to watch.

Amosa was a standout in Bordeaux last game and earned a place in our Top 14 Team of the Week.

He made 20 carries and 13 tackles against Pau as his side claimed a well deserved 41-19 win.

Elsewhere, Gael Fickou will make his Stade Francais debut while Sergio Parisse was cleared of any wrongdoing after he was red carded last weekend

Romain N'tamack - Toulouse

N'tamack had a nervy start to his season last weekend and will look to make quick improvements after showing his quality for the France u20s earlier this year.

Expect the youngster to bounce back and put in a handy performance against Grenoble.

Raymond Rhule is another player to keep an eye on with the South African impressing on his Grenoble debut last week.
