Comment from Head Coach, Lyn Jones:

"€œIt was great to start this competition with a positive result against the English champions.  We recognise that we have to improve what we can control and that primarily that means focussing on our performance.  Saturday"€™s fixture represents what I am sure most rugby people would agree is the toughest test in European rugby.  To face the leaders of the Championnat on their home patch is a massive challenge, but we will have to be careful not to show them too much respect."€

"€œWe will work on factors that are within our control, being our preparation and performance .  We will concentrate on what is good in our game and look to go out and express ourselves in a positive manner.  We clearly have the manpower required to get a result and if we see an improvement on last week"€™s performance, particularly in attack, we will be in with a shout."€
