Gloucester have dominated Pool 5 of this season’s European Rugby Challenge Cup from the outset, and go into Saturday’s  match at Kingsholm against French Top 14 outfit, Oyonnax, knowing that as long as they avoid defeat, they will be assured of a place in the quarter finals.

Despite their stuttering form in the Aviva Premiership, the Cherry and Whites have been in devastating form in Europe, where they have picked up 19 points from a possible 20, and head second placed Oyonnax by seven points. The home side will be confident of a 13th straight Challenge Cup Pool stage victory, against the side from the French Alps, who are amongst the poorest travellers in the Top 14 tournament.

With three wins from their four fixtures, a home defeat by Gloucester Rugby being the only blot on their record, the French club are still very much in the hunt for a place in the last eight, courtesy of being one of the best Pool runners-up. However, their inability to secure a single bonus point to date, may count against them in the final analysis, as might a possible lack of desire to chase qualification, given that they are only five points clear of the relegation zone, and they only escaped dropping back into the second tier of French rugby on the last day of the season. An experience that they will be keen to avoid again in this campaign.
