The French side, returned to European action for the first time for nearly a decade this season, but have found it tough going against fellow French side, Bayonne and London Wasps.
Bayonne v London Wasps
(Saturday December 10)
Bayonne versus London Wasps lash in Pool 3 promises to be one of the games of this round of games in this season's Amlin Challenge Cup.
The former Amlin Challenge Cup winners, back in 2003, travel to a Bayonne side who have just appointed Jean-Pierre Elissalde, the former Japan coach, as their new boss.
The Premiership side, who won the Heineken Cup in 2004 and 2007, will be under no illusions of the threat posed by a revitalised Bayonne side.
