Looking forward to it from, well provisisoned, behind the sofa with a periscope :kermit:

Usually a good 'un.

Wouldn't bet on it.

Not a particularly auspicious stadium :|

Stade Gerland renamed Matmut has only recently been vacated by Lyon footy and was in need of upgrade.
A lot of money recently spent and Lyon Rugby have inherited it.

It was in need of significant 'repair' performed recently.

Was well down the list of UEFA Stadium ratings.

Formal takeover was only this year

Finest world cuisine in Lyon and surrounding area. ;)

No probs, thought that there might be confusion, not the only Matmut stadium either ...

Will be very auspicious for the team that wins eh?

Clermont warmed up with a 18/59 away win against relegated Grenoble yesterday

They've been through the mill recently.

New centre Pineaud (remember his Dad?) is proving a very good attacker but not sure about his defence ....Leinster midfield are potent.

Looking forward to a good 'un ......

Clermont team announced

Worries (were they?) about Zirakashvili, Kayser (both important for the front row) and Yahaamahina have been allayed.

Rougerie in the centre in Fofana's place ...hmmm?

He's slow and ponderous these days but a big motivating factor to the bench. Young new kid on the block and impressive since January Pineaud is on the bench. Centre is a problem and Leinster strength, .. their form is impressive and midfield attack is a big part of that, set moves and enterprise effective.

Team here

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


Apart from Fofana and Nakaitaci that's a STRONG team ... no complaints there

PS There are 16 french qualified players in the squad
