Parma v Biarritz - Pool 6


An Tarbh

Only one outcome in this one.
Parma make 3 changes after their nightmare debut in the compeition last weekend, Andrea Orsi replaces Nicolas Mazucatto while in the forwards as well as the positional switches, De Marchi replaces Paoletti.

Thomas Lièvremont returns after a lengthy spell out and Dellape also returns to partner Thion in the second row. Hedley Wessels comes into the front row with Denis Avril the one to make way.
