The most successful club in the history of French domestic rugby will enter a new era this weekend, as they enter the 2015/16 Top 14 Orange tournament. Toulouse will be without Guy Noves at the helm, who after two decades at the club, has left to become head coach of the national team. Nine Top 14 titles and four European Cups is quite a legacy.

The new era, as they seek a first title since 2012, begins with a home game against Brive, who finished only just above the relegation positions last season. With some of the brightest young talent in France available to them, and the likes of Toby Flood not required by his country during the World Cup, Toulouse may just steal a march on their rivals while the global tournament is taking place, at least as far as the regular season table is concerned..

Brive will be relying on skipper Arnaud Méla to galvanise his troops, as they seek to avoid a repeat of the relegation battle that they were involved in last season. He will have the flying Fijian winger, Benito Masilevu, available to him all season, after the former sevens star missed out on Fiji's World Cup squad, along with Gaëtan Germain who is one of, if not the best, goal-kicker in the Top 14.
