Pool 3 in this season's Challenge Cup was thrown wide open last weekend, when the pre-season favourites to win the Pool, Stade Francais suffered a humiliating defeat at their own Stade Jean Bouin home, to the Newport Gwent Dragons. Sitting in fifth position in the Top 14 tournament, and with a 100% winning record at home, Stade found themselves beaten by an emphatic 22-38, and outscored by 4 tries to 1.

The Frenchmen will be grateful that they have to face amateur opposition this weekend, in the form of the Bucuresti Wolves from Romania, at the Stadium Arcul de Triumf, Bucharest. Stade will expect to get back to winning ways, and secure a try-scoring bonus point victory, although the home loss to the Dragons will leave them in a precarious position for the rest of the Pool stage, as they seek to qualify for the quarter finals of a tournament in which they have reached the final in two of the past four years.

The Wolves have played Stade four times previously in the Challenge Cup, but have been beaten on every occasions. Conceding on average 5-tries and nearly 40 points per match. The Romanians did perform admirably at Newcastle in Round 1, when despite losing 19-43, they did score three tries of their own, and were unlucky not to win a bonus point.
