Slater Skipper

No light relief in Europe tonioght with a tough trip to Agen .. its an early 6.30 kick off and isn't on the telly.

Pau lead the group just three points ahead of Glaws with the game at Kingsholm between the two next week looking like the decider.

However, that would change if we lost tonight. The 61-16 win when the two sides met at Kingsholm means we should be confident, but all French sides are much tougher opposition in front of their own supporters so Ed Slater leads a strong squad.
