In one of the ties of the weekend, two of Europe’s form teams go head-to-head in a mouth-watering clash in central France.

Clermont Auvergne edged a thrilling 16-15 win over three-time European champions Toulouse last weekend to hit top spot in the Top 14 while the Ospreys have recorded five successive wins.

Clermont head coach Vern Cotter fielded an under-strength side which shows the depth and quality of the squad at the Stade Marcel Michelin.

But the Ospreys possess ability of their own with a side containing the likes of British Lions stars Shane Williams, Lee Byrne, James Hook, skipper Ryan Jones and former All Black Jerry Collins. It makes for a cracker.
