All eyes are on the Top 14, with all the former Wallabies out of contention in the Premiership and Pro12.

Adam Ashley-Cooper will line up at 13 for Bordeaux when they take on Brive on Sunday morning (AEST), with BOrdeaux looking to scrape back into finals contention.

His Wallabies teammate, Sekope Kepu, has not been named in the 23, with a return to the Test scene looming.

Kepu was named in Michael Cheika’s 39-man Wallabies squad this week ahead of the June Test series against England.

Toulon takes on Montpellier on Monday morning and while their teams are yet to be named Quade Cooper, Matt Giteau and James O’Connor will likely start for Toulon, while Jesse Mogg and Nic White are in the mix to suit up for Montpellier.

Former Wallabies captain Ben Mowen recently confirmed a move from Montpellier to Pau, in the Top 14 competition.


Saracens will take on Exeter in the Premiership final, a match that might attract some Aussie eyes.

Exeter is the former club of Wallabies and Waratahs forward Dean Mumm, and the future home of Waratahs vice-captain Dave Dennis and Wallabies prop Greg Holmes.


Connacht takes on Leinster in the Pro12 final, after knocking Taqele Naiyaravoro's Glasgow Warriors.
