Top 14 Ins and Outs

Having recently confirmed their 2020/21 calendar, the Top 14 will kickstart with Stade Francais hosting table leaders Union Bordeaux Begles at Stade Jean-Bouin on September 4th.



The tournament finished off with Toulon claiming a 1-point victory over Stade Francais back in March 2020, and the teams will be taking the field with some new faces following a number of player movements during the pause.
