Including their previous entry into the European Rugby Challenge Cup, London Welsh have lost six successive games in the tournament, ahead of Sunday's Pool 4 fixture at the Kassam Stadium in Oxford, against Lyon from the French Top 14. The last victory that the Exiles recorded in Europe, was two years ago in January 2013, when they they defeated the Italian part-timers from Cavalieri Prato.

Prior to last weekend's fixtures, Pool 4 looked as if it was already sorted as far as the finishing positions and qualification to the knockout stages was concerned. However, the lat drop goal by Lyon skipper Fabrice Estebanez which stole a dramatic 21-19 win over Edinburgh, suddenly threw the Pool wide open.

Edinburgh play Bordeaux-Begles at Murrayfield, with the winners advancing as Pool winners. The losers however, could be overtaken by Lyon, should they win at the Kassam on Sunday. Lyon could then potentially sneak into the last eight, as one of the best runners-up. With this match in Oxford being the only Challenge Cup fixture played on Sunday, the French club will have the advantage of knowing exactly what they need to do to qualify, if other results go their way over the course of the weekend.
