Biarritz will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing opening weekend defeat by Gloucester with a win over Italian champions Calvisano. With Gloucester meeting Cardiff on Sunday, this is the perfect opportunity for Biarritz to throw their hat into contention for qualification.

The Italian side were routed 56-20 by Cardiff Blues in the last round, and will themselves be looking for a morale boosting result.

Biarritz: Benjamin Thiery, Takudzwa Ngwenya, Romain Cabannes, Damien Traille, Philippe Bidabe, Julien Peyrelongue, Fabien Cibray, Eduard Coetzee, Benoit August, Mosese Moala, Jérôme Thion (c), Jacques Cronje, Magnus Lund, Peïo Som, Samiu Vahafolau

Replacements: Benoit Bourrust, Fabien Barcella, Jean-Baptiste Roidot, Mohammed Dridi, Laurent Tranier, Andrea Masi, Jean-Baptiste Gobelet

Calvisano: Luke McLean, Ludovico Nitoglia, Matteo Pratichetti, Ben William Smith, Marko Stanojevic, Nanni Raineri, Paul Griffen, Hoani Tui, Leonardo Ghiraldini (c), Ben Evans, Valério Bernabo, Justin Purll, David Dal Maso, Aaron Persico, Alessandro Zanni
