And they should head their in confident mood according to Easterby who was delighted with his side's display in their 16-13 victory over Castres on Saturday.
"This weekend's win in France against Castres to get us into the Amlin Challenge Cup quarter finals will stand the team in good stead for our next encounter in Europe," he said.
"It's just great the boys have this opportunity to keep European hopes of silverware alive and we're now in all three of our competitions and that's great for the forward momentum and focus for these players to the end of the season.
"Brive had a good win against Sale beating the English club on their home soil in January in this competition, so it shows what they can do. They may be mid table and not one of the best-known and high profile French clubs but they are working hard and their results are now improving.
"They're another big, physical pack and outmuscled Sale and Brive were in the knock out stages of the Amlin last season too, so will come to the quarter-final with confidence particularly at their home ground.
"But that was a pretty big win for this group of players at the weekend on a number of levels and it will be in our minds and that will give our mental edge a boost."
