For Zebre, appearing in the European Challenge Cup will be a new experience. Since their formation two seasons ago, the Italian team has previously played in the Heineken Cup.With the change in the qualification process from the Guinness PRO12, Zebre missed out on the last day of last season's PRO12 tournament for the Italian place in the  Champions Cup, and therefore find themselves for the Oyonnax first time in the second tier competition.

On Saturday. the Italians will welcome the French Top 14 club Oyonnax to the Stadio XXV Aprile, Parma for their opening Pool 5 fixture.With Gloucester and Brive completing the Pool, it will be important for both sides to get off to a winning start, if they are to have realistic chances of making it through to the knockout stages of the tournament.

The French side having just survived in the Top 14 at the end of the last season, are now rooted to the foot of the table once more, having played and lost five fixtures away from home in the current campaign. They may be reluctant to place too much emphasis on the European competition, when it may affect their Top 14 survival chances.
