Post Osps/Clermont Rnd 1 2017/2018 Champs Cup
Clermont having and unusually poor start to Season

Currently P6 W3 L3

(They play Toulouse tonight)

incl a 50pt thrashing by La Roc

Can't see Osps living with their back line though.

I attended the Ospreys-Clermont match in January last year when Sam Davies came on to replace Biggar, who had a dead leg, and against all expectations helped the team win after being behind. As bad as the Ospreys have been lately, nothing is pre-ordained, especially given that they have home advantage, and as you said Clermont have also started this season quite badly.

Clermont by 10+, unless Lacey or Clancy is the referee

The OP image already says that Andrew Brace shall be the ref.

Clermont lost away to Tlse 28/18 3 tries to 2

They are not the team they were last Season by a long chalk.

Tlse have found their form again and played very well.

They are 3rd in the table ....

Huget back to vintage form.

Dupont 2 tries and continues his fine Season.

Still think that Osps will have a difficult game...

Not formerly announced but this am's French Press suggestion of Clermont's team looks ominous

They have been off form big time but if that lot click Osps could be buried!

PS Jarvis on the bench (I'm surprised the Georgian prop Zirakashvili,is not selected, he's one of the best props in the league!)

PPS Fofana, Nakaitaci, Toeava backs all injured and Itturia the international 2nd row

We'll have to wait another 24 hrs to get the teams ..

Naj, both teams now announced here :

In my opinion that's a mountain to climb for the Osps if Clermont get their act together?

Three Brits in the Clermont team (and Abendanon isn't even there). Impressive.

Ospreys got their act together somewhat last weekend, but I predict a pretty one sided match against Clermont.
