The programming of the Top 14 modified
The LNR also had to review the schedule of matches for the 3rd day of the Top 14, scheduled for October 2 to 4, after the two weekends devoted to the quarter-finals and semi-finals of European competitions. Indeed, in order to ensure its broadcaster a meeting on Friday evening and another on Sunday evening, the NRL has decided to schedule two matches on these crucial time slots. Regarding the 3rd day, the match between Brive and Pau goes from Saturday late afternoon to Friday evening in parallel with Stade Français Paris-Bayonne. For Sunday evening, it is the match between Montpellier and Castres which goes from Saturday to Sunday at 7:00 p.m., just before the Toulouse-Toulon poster, which will kick off at 9:00 p.m. A modified program which will be reproduced until further notice due to the risks of postponing meetings at the last moment in the event of the spread of the coronavirus in clubs.
