There's no harm in doing so with a chance to rest players against Timisoara the following week. It may be a good chance to gauge what progress we've made since they gave us a thrashing at home.

It feels like he's not saying.....but it won't be full strength. I dont have a problem with that.

Not sure it will matter what team we put out re the match result or provide any indication of general progress. We and probably any team in the Northern hemisphere (Leinster and Sarries excluded ) would almost certainly get a 30 point plus drubbing away to this years form side. They are averaging home and away over 30 points a match in Top 14 this year , stuffing other top French sides at home , positive points difference massive in their league , and scoring tryís for fun. As a team we are making good progress - however at present we are miles away from where CF are and in my view a David vís Goliath performance will be required to keep the points difference to less than 15 . My head tells me that they will unfortunately blow us away .Fingers crossed that I am wrong and more importantly in my mind just hope we have no injuries.

We probably will get well beaten but then again...Biarritz, Ulster, Leinster all come to mind !

CB will possibly stick pretty close to selecting a side similar to last week .....

Very strong Clermont team. Timani in for Jedraziak with van der Merwe on the bench. Fernandez for Nanai-Williams.
