Castres to meet Montpellier in T14 final
May 26, 2018 5:30 pm
Castres upset Racing 92 19-14 and book a Top 14 final against Montpellier.
A star-studded Racing side who finished second in the regular season and lost the European Champions Cup final to Leinster were clear favourite in the semi-final contest.
KEO.co.za reports, Racing had a try ruled out in each half but, despite outscoring the underdogs two tries to one, were unable to find the killer blow.
Racing peppered the line and had a series of close-range scrums in a dramatic finish, but Castres held firm for a fine win.
Castres will take on regular-season table-toppers Nemani Nadolo’s Montpellier at the Stade de France next Sunday in their first Top 14 final since 2014, having won the title the previous year.
