Brive are left with nothing but pride to play for in Pool 5 of the European Rugby Challenge Cup, when they face Aviva Premiership side, Gloucester, on Thursday at the Stade Amedee Domenech, Brive. Two losing bonus-points from their five qualifying fixtures are all that the French club have to show for their excursion into Europe this season, while their visitors from the English West Country are the only unbeaten side in the tournament, and top the Pool with five wins out of five.

Although already certain of a place in the quarter-finals, Gloucester Rugby travel to France with the incentive of knowing that a win will secure top seeding for the knockout stages, and a potentially  advantageous draw.

When the clubs met at Kingsholm in the opening round of fixtures back in October, the Cherry and Whites ran out emphatic winners by 55-0, setting the tone for subsequent rounds in Pool 5. Gloucester clinched their place in the last eight with a comfortable 33-3 home win last weekend, over second placed Oyonnax, also from the Top 14 in France. Brive meanwhile were slipping to a 13-23 defeat in Italy to Zebre. Certain of European elimination, Brive are likely to field a weakened side, keeping key players for the domestic Top 14 tournament where they are just 3 points above the relegation positions.
