The LNR, essentially the French National Rugby League is the organisation that administrates the Top 14, as well as the second tier Rugby Pro D2. The Top 14 features France’s 14 best rugby union club sides and the season runs from August through to the following June. That means almost an entire year of rugby betting action and if you have a bet on the Top 14 outright winner early on in the campaign, you’ll get huge value for your money.

All sides will play each other twice, meaning 26 games per side, with fixtures coming at home and away. As with most long established sporting leagues, the precise format and structure of the league and its games has changed many times over the years.

The top clubs qualify for the pan-continental European Rugby Champions Cup, the “Champions League” of European rugby union. There is, at the other end of the spectrum, the prospect of relegation to the Rugby Pro D2, with the bottom two sides automatically relegated from the Top 14.

Historically Stade Toulousain, Stade Français and AS Béziers have been the most successful clubs when it comes to betting on the outright winner of the top 14. As of 2016 those three giants of French rugby have 44 titles between them. Even dating back to the earliest years of the competition, the overall winner has been decided via a play-off game, as opposed to the overall league standings following the “normal” 26 games.

This keeps things very interesting from a betting perspective and you can bet on sides to win the Top 14, win the normal season, make the play-offs, finish bottom or be relegated, as well as certain other outrights.

Aside from those long-term markets, there are also a huge range of betting options for each and every Top 14 game. Our live odds comparison covers both the games and the outrights, so whilst picking your bets might not be easy, getting the best betting odds is!
