Two sides who have shown great attacking intent through the season, but have also displayed defensive frailties which have cost them on the domestic front, go head to head at Sixways in Worcester on Sunday, with the winners claiming the 20th and final place in next season's European Rugby Champions Cup. Gloucester from the Aviva Premiership, who owe their place in the shootout to their success in claiming the Challenge Cup, "host" Bordeaux Begles from France's Top 14 tournament, who arrive in Worcester as the result of a seventh place finish in that competition.

But for a last gasp missed penalty from in front of the posts by Lionel Beauxis in the last game of the regular season, Bordeaux would this weekend be taking part in the Top 14 play-offs, and Oyonnax would have been the opponents for the Cherry and Whites.Gloucester Rugby have kept their best for European competition this season, winning their Challenge Cup Pool with a 100% winning record, as they have registered 10 wins from 10 fixtures, including last weekend's dramatic extra-time play-off victory over the Irish Province of Connacht.
