Wallabies teammates Adam Ashley-Cooper and Sekope Kepu will be starting for Bordeaux against Oyonnax on Sunday morning.

Bordeaux will  go into the match as favourites against the bottom of the table Oyonnax, who have just three wins from 15 matches.

Ashley-Cooper will be starting on the wing, while kepu will be at tighthead prop.

Capped Wallabies back Jesse Mogg will once again start on the wing for Montpellier, when they face Castres Olympique.

Mogg will be on the left wing, while his former Wallabies teammate Nic White will be injected off the bench.

Toulon is yet to name its side for the final Top 14 clash of the weekend, on Monday morning (AEDT).

One certainty is that it will not contain Quade Cooper, with the flyhalf in Las Vegas for his Australian Sevens debut.


James Horwill will start at lock for the Harlequins against Sale on Saturday night (AEDT),

George Smith will start at openside flanker against Gloucester, with the veteran in scintillating form for his English side.

Peter Betham returns to the Leicester side at outside centre as the Tigers look for a second consecutive win.

The fourth-placed Leicester take on second-placed Exeter in the match that is shaping up as an epic.


Luke Burgess had a tough outing with Zebre in the Pro12, losing 32-0 to Ulster.

Burgess came off the bench in the 53rd minute of the match, with the score 20-0 at that stage.

Mark Chisholm will start at lock for Munster against the Newport Gwent Dragons at Thormond Park on Sunday morning (AEDT).

Taqele Naiyaravoro has not been named in the Glasgow side to face Cardiff.
