Champions Castres face make or break Montpellier clash
Freight train industry to miss safety deadline
Champions Castres face a crunch home clash with Top 14 leaders Montpellier on Friday with the defence of their title on the line. Castres hold the sixth and last play-off qualification spot -- also the last guaranteed place in next season's European Cup -- but with just two games remaining they are in the firing line of two teams hoping to deny them the chance to extend their campaign. In this most competitive and surprising of Top 14 seasons, only Montpellier have so far secured a play-off berth, although Clermont and European champions Toulon both need only a losing bonus point to take their places. The champions have been in poor form in recent weeks, with just one win in their last four matches, leaving them only three points above Stade Francais and Bordeaux-Begles.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Only one-fifth of its track will be equipped with mandatory safety technology to prevent the most catastrophic kinds of collisions and derailments by the deadline set by Congress, the freight railroad industry said Wednesday.
