The match between Brive and Oyonnax at the Stade Amedee Domenech will provide the winners with some much needed breathing space between themselves and the bottom of the Top 14 table. The two sides are currently in tenth and ninth positions respectively in the table, with just a four and five point gap between themselves and newly promoted La Rochelle, who are in the second relegation spot.

The sides have met in the European Challenge Cup for the past two weekends, with Oyonnax emerging victorious on both occasions. When they played in Brive two weeks ago, the visitors won a bruising encounter by 30-22, with both clubs scoring three tries each, but with Oyonnax taking the penalty opportunities on offer.

Last weekend's contest was even closer, with Oyonnax again sneaking home by 22-17, and outscoring their opponents three tries to two. For both sides, the outcome of Saturday's Top 14 Orange clash will be of far more significance. Oyonnax trail Pool leaders Gloucester by 7 points and are outsiders to qualify for the quarter finals, while Brive are now eliminated. Survival in the Top 14 tournament now takes on the top priority for both clubs, and a win on Saturday may just remove some of the pressure they are both under, and allow them more freedom in their play.
