Although Bayonne are in ninth position in the French Top 14 after nine rounds of fixtures, they are a mere three points above the relegation positions, which will have the management at the Stade Jean-Dauger looking anxiously over their shoulders. Saturday will see Exeter Chiefs visiting the French outfit in the opening fixture of this season's European Challenge Cup, in what could be a highly competitive Pool, the doubt being how seriously the French sides take their European commitments.

The other sides in the Pool, being Connacht from Ireland, who have been in fine form in the early part of the Guinness PRO12 season, and La Rochelle, who newly promoted to the Top 14, are struggling in twelfth position, immediately above the relegation zone. Exeter may find some comfort ahead of their trip to France, from Bayonne's indifferent home form, which has seen them beaten in two of their five matches so far. The Stade Jean Dauger is far from the fortress that many French grounds are.

Saturday will be the first meeting of the two clubs, neither of whom has any European pedigree of which to speak. Bayonne having played just over 50 European ties, with a 50% success rate, while the Chiefs have taken part in 13 matches in their brief European history.
