David, Borelli and Craig return against Custer

Apart from full-back Luke Morahan (leg), winger Arnaud Erbinartegaray (groin) and long-term injured (Germain, Jacquelain), the coach will be spoiled for choice to make his squad. Undergoing patellar tendon surgery and missing since the start of the season, winger Arthur Duhoe took part in group training on Thursday. He will not be part of Saturday’s group but he will become an option for the future.

In the same position, England’s Marland Yard, who have played just one European encounter since arriving in December, are close to making their Top 14 debut. He was sometimes on the side of the stockholders, during Thursday’s session. He is in balance with Remy Paget, who is holding the rope. On the other wing, Bastien Borelli will start the match in place of Victor Hanoune. The former Clermontois has only had one top 14 match to date, and four European challenges.

Center back, Yann David returns to the starting fifteen. He must team up with Sireli Maqala, and push Eneriko Buliruarua to the bench. At the back and hinge, the works team will have confidence in the French court winners: Yohan Orabi, Camille López and Guillaume Rouet.

Second line on the bench

Up front, very little user Jeffrey Craig can be given a chance to start the meeting, on one of the third-row wings. The New Zealander will replace Baptiste Hughe in a trio with Uzair Cassim and Pierre Huguet. In the second line, Captain Denis Marcois will continue his association with Thomas City. But he could move to the third row during the match if the coaches chose the option of putting Konstantin Mikotadze and Manuel Leendekar, two second rows, on the bench.
