After a season spent in the Championship, Worcester Warriors return to European action on Saturday, with a Challenge Cup home match against the Top 14 outfit, La Rochelle. The Warriors have won both of their home matches at Sixways this season in the Aviva Premiership, and are in sixth place on the table. Their visitors meanwhile have won three of eight Top 14 fixtures, and sit in ninth position in their own league.

Last time the Warriors played in the European Rugby Challenge Cup, they finished fourth and bottom of their Pool with one win, against Oyonnax a draw and four losses. However, their overall record in the competition is impressive, with 22 wins from the last 28 home matches. La Rochelle have won just one of their last seven matches in the Challenge Cup, and each of the defeats during that run has been by a margin of at least 10 points.

Saturday will be the first time that these two sides have clashed in European competition. With four road trips in the Top 14 al bringing defeat, Worcester will be clear favourites to start the new Challenge Cup campaign with a victory. The Pool is completed by Worcester's neighbours and last season's runners-up Gloucester, along with PRO12 side Zebre from Parma in Italy.
