Castres is measured against Bordeaux live this Saturday from 10 on Star + and will seek to maintain the positive streak with which the Top 14 began at the Stade Pierre Fabre for the third date. The blue team has two victories and will have in the substitute bench to the Argentine Benjamín Urdapilleta and Uruguayan Santiago Arata.
Different is the present of Bordeaux, who already recovered from the setback on the first date and beat the Stade Français at home last weekend. The winemakers will have the debut of Pablo Dimcheff, that arrived this season from Soyaux-Angouleme that disputes the Pro D2. However, he will not be able to count on the Argentines Guido Petti or Santiago Cordero, that are found with Los Pumas in Australia in the Rugby Championship dispute.
