Clermont rested the majority of their players in their Top 14 defeat at Racing 92 at this weekend and will hope Camille Lopez slots back into a team having missed the last six games due to the Six Nations. His last game for Franck Azema's side came on Jan. 8.

Guilhem Guirado returned and played 33 minutes off the bench at the weekend, while Leigh Halfpenny returns following a break at the end of the Six Nations. Coach Mike Ford said at the start of the week that Francois Trinh-Duc will start at 10, having played at fly-half against Stade Francais.
