We are entering the return phase of the regular season, which means that there are only 5 games left for each team to reach the objectives. For some, it will be to grab a place in the playoffs, for others, it will be to ensure maintenance in D1 Elite.

Conference B

Grenoble Centaurs (1-4) vs Catalan Grizzlys (3-2)

Sat 09/04/22 19:00

On the last day of the first leg, the Centaurs managed to get their first success of the season. At the same time, the Grizzlys lost, but came close to taking down the Blue Stars in Marseille in a great game. The Catalans club has shown its ambitions and its qualities, and it wants to keep this 2th place to go to the playoffs. For Grenoble, the objective is to continue and do better than in the first leg, where the Grizzlys won easily (34-12).

Montpellier Hurricanes (0-5) vs Marseille Blue Stars (5-0)

Sat 09/04/22 19:00

During the 1time day, the Blue Stars had launched their season perfectly by largely dominating the Hurricanes. Since this match, Marseille have confirmed their status as favorites in Conference B, while Montpellier have had a string of disappointing matches and disappointments. Conclusion, the Marseillais are still undefeated, and the Canes are chasing after a first success in the league.

Dominant in their first four games, the Blue Stars showed that they could be taken two weeks ago, pushed to their limits by the Grizzlys. For the Hurricanes, the situation is critical after a new slap received in Grenoble (37-0). The Montpellier have the worst defense in the championship after 5 days (213 points conceded). The situation is critical.

Toulouse Bears (3-2) vs Argonautes of Aix en Provence (3-2)

Sun 04/10 14:00

Particularity of the calendar, the Bears and the Argos are already meeting, two weeks after the first leg. And the Toulouse club had created a small sensation by winning in Provence with a score of 20 to 6. Aix will therefore want to take revenge quickly to relaunch a positive series.

This game is important in the race for the Conference B playoffs. Both the Bears and the Argonauts share the same record as the Grizzlys, so there is a good 3-for-2 square. The winner of this direct duel will take a step forward.

Conference A

Flash de la Courneuve (5-0) vs Molosses d’Asnières (1-4)

Sat 09/04/22 19:00

Undefeated during the first leg – 5 wins in 5 games, the Flash was even able to rotate its workforce during the last day in Villeneuve d’Ascq. The holders will therefore arrive fresh for this new Ile-de-France duel, against Asnières sur Seine.

The Molossians, who have won only one game since the start of the season, will want to do better than in the first match. At home, they had taken a scathing 40-6 in the 2th daytime. Interesting defensively, the 92 team will have to find rhythm in attack, because it is indeed the limits in this sector that slow them down. We saw it again very clearly in Thonon two weeks ago.

Thonon Black Panthers (4-1) vs Saint-Ouen Cougars (3-2)

Sat 09/04/22 19:00

Very interesting match between the two most serious outsiders in Conference A. The objective is therefore very clearly a place in the playoffs for the Black Panthers as for the Cougars, and this direct confrontation can decide the final position.

The first leg, during the 2th day, had been particularly tight, with a success of 1 small point of the Black Panthers on the ground of Saint-Ouen (27-28). A first victory that had launched the club of the Alps, which has not lost since. Engaged in the European Cup (CEFL), the Panthers played last weekend against Madrid, and they won again (12-6).

Villeneuve d’Ascq Vikings (0-5) vs Amiens Spartans (2-3)

Sat 09/04/22 19:00

Tricky first part of the season for the Vikings, who haven’t won a single game yet. What if it was for this weekend? Opposite, the Spartans are on a negative series of 3 defeats in a row, and we remember that the first leg (J2) had been rather tight, with a short 20-13 success for Amiens away from home.
