After last weekend shock 3-23 defeat at the Stoop to their Premiership rivals, Wasps, Harlequins not only lost control of Pool 2 in the European Rugby Champions Cup, but their hopes of securing a quarter-final spot were also left hanging by a thread.

On Saturday, the London aristocrats travel to the Stade Pierre Antoine to play bottom of the Pool Castres, knowing that at the very least they need to win the match, and hope that other results go their way over the course of the weekend, in order to sneak through as one of the three best Pool runners-up. It is more likely that the Premiership club will need a try-scoring bonus point win, that would take them to a final total of 18 points, if they are to have a chance of sneaking through.

Castres who are having a difficult season domestically, currently sitting in bottom but one position in the Top 14 table. In European competition they have fared no better, with just a solitary losing bonus point from their five fixtures. Harlequins will be wary of their previous results against Castres. They have won just one of the five games between the clubs, the 25-9 win in Round 1 of this season's tournament.
