The Newport Gwent Dragons secured an unlikely quarter-final spot in the European Rugby Challenge Cup last weekend, when they travelled to the far North East of England, and defeated the Newcastle Falcons, who had been leading Pool 3, by 40-29. With four wins and five bonus points from their first five fixtures in the qualifying stage of the tournament, the Dragons have a record that is second only to Gloucester's.

On Saturday, the Dragons play the return fixture against the big spending Parisians from Stade Francais, having produced one of the finest results in their history in Round 1, when they defeated Stade on their own ground by 38-22, outscoring the home side by 4 tries to 1.

Stade are currently riding high in the Top 14 tournament, lying second just a point behind the leaders Clermont Auvergne. They have however, found the going much tougher in the Challenge Cup. Three wins and two defeats has left them in third place in the Pool, going into the last round of qualifying fixtures. With Newcastle Falcons, who have a single point advantage over Stade, travelling to Romania to take on the Bucharest Wolves, it appears unlikely that even a win on Saturday for Stade at Rodney Parade will be enough to keep them in the tournament.
