Biarritz may be top of Pool 2 in the Heineken Cup so far this season but there is still a lot at stake for Gloucester Rugby as they prepare for Saturday's meeting between the two sides (kick off 3pm).
The French side currently lead the table by 10 points from Gloucester in second place and look a good bet to top the pool.
However, with the two best placed second place pool finishers qualifying for the quarter finals of the Heineken Cup and the third, fourth and fifth going into the draw for the quarter finals of the Amlin Challenge Cup, there is still plenty for Gloucester to play for.
The top eight ranked Heineken Cup teams (six pool winners and two best runners up) will ine up in the quarter finals as follows:
Team 1 vs Team 8
Team 2 vs Team 7
Team 3 vs Team 6
Team 4 vs Team 5
Tickets are still available in all areas of the ground for Saturday's game. Tickets can still be purchased online by calling the ticket hotline on 0871 871 8781* option 2 or by clicking here
* Calls to this number will cost 10 pence per minute from BT landlines, calls from other networks and mobiles may vary.
