Toulouse vs La Rochelle
Rugby Union – Top 14 – Final:
Toulouse ended the regular season in first place of the Top 14 and just three points ahead of La Rochelle on bonus points alone. They closely beat Bordeaux Begles 24-21 at home last Friday to make it four wins on the spin but Bordeaux almost spring a surprise that should inspire La Rochelle here as Toulouse had to rely on a red card to get them over the line in the end.
Second-placed La Rochelle were much more convincing at home to Racing 92, who they beat 19-6 in a typically solid showing at the back. Toulouse have won 4 of the last 5 H2Hs, but 2 of the last 3 have been decided by 5 points or less.
We expect a tight game here in the final, and either side can take it, so we will give the extra points to Toulouse.
Toulouse +3.5 @1.72
