The holders of the Elite 2 Cup, Baho, bowed out at the first stage as their difficult start to the season continued.

Didier Meynard had a number of injuries and suspensions to deal with and they went down to Entraigues, a team they had beaten just a few weeks previous.

In the Catalans derby between Pia and Ille, the “Baroudeurs” won, to bounce back from their defeat to Villefranche.

Ille, who were without several starters, lost the game in the first half, trailing 22-0 at half time before restoring some pride after the break.

VARL and Lescure met for the second time following their previous league clash, with VARL pulling away to win in the second half.
