Although the Italians may feel confident going into Saturday's match at the Peroni Stadium with just a five point deficit, they will be all too well aware that when the two sides met in Pool 3 of last season's Amlin Challenge Cup, the Romanians won both contests between the sides. The fixture in Calvisano resulted in a comprehensive 23-11 victory for the visiting Wolves. Those were the only matches that the Wolves won in the competition, while the Italians finished bottom of the Pool, winless, but having drawn against the eventual Pool winners, Brive from France.
