It’s the final round of Amlin Challenge Cup pool fixtures this weekend, and with only the winner of each pool going through there is still plenty to play for in most pools. Bath and Wasps are the only teams to already have qualified, leaving three pools still competitive. Newcastle can progress if Brive slip up, but at home to winless Calvisano that seems like a bit of a long shot.
London Irish and Stade Français are currently equal on points in Pool 5, and with both sides playing minnows this weekend they should pick up the maximum – that would see Stade qualify on the difference between them in the games played against each other. Finally, Pool 1 is the most interesting, with Sale travelling to Biarritz currently four points ahead of the Basque side. Bonus points could be vital in that one.
Newcastle Falcons v Bucharest Wolves: Newcastle by 10
Brive v Calvisano: Brive by 30
Bath v Borgeaux Begles: Bath by 20
