In the middle of the heavyweights of the championship, the Tarn club is doing well and could win its third Brennus shield in ten years.
The little. Really? If, this Friday evening, Castres Olympique wins the final of the Top 14, it will win its third Brennus shield in ten years. As much as Stade Toulousain since 2012. And much better than Clermont, Racing 92, Stade Français Paris and Toulon, which, during this decade, have only been crowned French champions once. Not to mention Lyon, which has been waiting for a new national title since 1933, UBB, Stade Rochelais and… Montpellier, which are still chasing after a first consecration. In the midst of these heavyweights of the championship, the Tarn club nevertheless continues to hold its own. Quietly – they never cease to regret the lukewarmness of the media towards them -, without excessive means, nor internationals with high-sounding names (no Castres player , for example, took part in the Grand Slam of the XV of France, last spring).
