The Elite 1 rugby league season got underway in France last weekend and it was a mixed start for the two teams who will clash here. Lezignan were beaten away at Toulouse 20-16 in what was a surprise to some people after they won the league, but lost the play-off final last season, but there was better news for the fans of Avignon. They won 28-20 at home to Carcassonne to give themselves the best possible start and it will be interesting to see if they can follow up here, in a much tougher game. Let's check our best rugby union tips for this match.
Much was expected of Lezignan coming into this season, they are the most successful Elite 1 club after all so it is no surprise. They came close last season winning the league, but failing in the play-off final and Lord Derby Cup final, so will be looking to go one better this season.
Avignon finished 5th in the league standings last season, but if their performance last weekend is anything to go by, we could see them do better this season. They were very impressive at home to Carcassonne, and if they build on that here they have a chance of a very promising start to the season.
As this is just the second game of the season for both of these clubs, players are still settling and clubs are working out what is the best way forward. Despite losing last weekend, we think we are going to see Lezignan bounce back here and beat Avignon, which would put both teams on one win from their opening two games if it happens.
We were impressed by Avignon last weekend, but this is a much tougher test for them away from home and it may be a step too far right now, we expect Lezignan to come out on top here. Let's see how to work out rugby union odds.
Lezignan Sangliers came close last season winning the league, but failing in the play-off final and Lord Derby Cup final, so will be looking to go one better this season. On the same note, Avignon did well, getting a much-deserved 5th place in the league, but Lezignan boasts some incredible players with tremendous skills. They won 28-20 at home to Carcassonne to give themselves the best possible start, and even though they lost against Toulouse lately, they should be able to get back on track. Lezignan Sangliers come with a great price at Unibet and are definitely our favourites given their recent history and stamina.
