We will have to overcome Toulouse's unbeaten record on Sunday if we are to stand any chance of going through as one of the three best runners-up.   It will be a tough task specially on their own pitch - but we have selected a side which could upset any applecart.

Mark Atkinson is back alongside Billy Twelvetrees at centre and in the pack Alex Craig, will be alongside Franco Mostert in the second row and Jake Polledri returns in the back row .

Danny Cipriaini is injured, of course, but Lloyd Evans isn't a bad replacement.

Our rivals for those three places are Saracens, Northampton,  Glasgow and Ulster. Sarries host Racing on Sunday lunchtime Saints are at Lyon and Glasgow at Sale both on Saturday. Ulster are at home to Bath on Saturday so come the 5.15 kick off in France on Sunday we will definitely know what will be required.


Gloucs: 15 .Jason Woodward; 14. Louis Rees-Zammit, 13. Billy Twelvetrees, 12. Mark Atkinson, 11. Ollie Thorley; 10. Lloyd Evans, 9. Willi Heinz (captain); 1. Val Rapava-Ruskin, 2. Todd Gleave, 3. Ciaran Knight; 4. Alex Craig, 5. Franco Mostert; 6. Jake Polledri, 7. Lewis Ludlow, 8. Ruan Ackermann

Reps: 16 .Henry Walker, 17. Alex Seville, 18. Josh Hohneck, 19. Gerbrandt Grobler, 20. Freddie Clarke, 21. Joe Simpson, 22. Owen Williams, 23. Tom Marshall
