Castres 46-9 Grenoble (8-0-review)

The graphic below shows the extent of Grenoble’s injury crisis - Bernard Jackman will hope it ends fast because this selection looked like they met that morning.  Castres hit them for seven unanswered tries due to setpiece domination and mostly decent open play with everything running through scrumhalf Kockott and his replacement Dupont.  Between missed kicks in first half and butchered try chances in second, the home side should have easily hit 60pts.  This particular victory shouldn’t worry Leinster too much.
