Stade Francais can be forgiven for thinking they just have to turn up at Stade Jean-Bouin to beat Calvisano on Saturday.

The French side sit proudly top of Pool 3, while the Italians have had a joyless campaign with five defeats from five and they will count it as a moral win if they can stop the French scoring four tries.

A win over Calvisano for Stade would settle the issue of who tops the group with a possible best runners-up spot at stake in Manchester.
