The two clubs that won their opening fixtures in Pool 5 of the European Rugby Challenge Cup, Oyonnax and Gloucester Rugby, clash at the Stade Charles Mathon, Oyonnax on Saturday. Oyonnax had to produce a wonderful last 20 minutes in the match in Italy in Round 1 against Zebre, in order to secure the win. They had trailed 16-24 entering the final quarter, before 17 unanswered points brought them their first away win in European competition.

Having lost all five matches that they played in the Top 14 tournament this season, as they have slipped to the foot of the domestic table, the first hour of the match in Parma may not have come as any great surprise. However, their comeback win may lift their expectations towards this season's Challenge Cup, as well as boosting their confidence for the challenges that lie ahead in the Top 14.

Gloucester's whose form in the Aviva Premiership this season has been somewhat inconsistent, produced their best performance by far of the campaign in Round 1 last weekend. Brive were the visitors to Kingsholm, and were brushed aside by 55-0, including a 7-try return for the West Country outfit. The bonus point from the Brive result gives Gloucester the edge at the top of the Pool, as Oyonnax managed just three tries in Parma.
