Last weekend saw the completion of Top 14 Orange Round 16 in France and the Aviva Premiership Round 13 in England.
It was business as usual in France.
There were seven home wins, two by lower ranked teams (Stade Francais and Oyonnax) over higher ranked opponents from 2013-2014. (Gold indicated lower ranked team win and red a higher ranked team’s loss. Green and blue are anticipated wins and losses.)
For the first time in the 2014-2015 season, the Aviva premiership teams followed their French counterparts’ leads. There were six home wins.
Four lower ranked teams (Harlequins, Sale, Gloucester and London Irish) defeated higher ranked opponents from the 2013-2014 season.
