 Montabaun beat Toulon at the weekend so that will be a test for them.

I would personally pay more attention  to the fact they drew 9-9 with Clermont and Clermont beat Toulouse over the weekend. One half of a game at a time, slowly slowly ctaches monkey. 
Indeed they are. Max Guazzini has sacked both coaches this afternoon (Mckenzie & Domenici) and replaced them with Jacques Delmar & Didier Faugeron. (who they)? 

apparently the new coaches are the guy who took Agen down in 2007, and the bloke who was sacked by Biarritz just three months into last season because they made such a poor start

I can't understand why the coaches were sacked. Their pack looked strong against Perpignan, although they lost and lacked discipline. Their backs suffer from headless chicken syndrome a bit though. We could really capitalise here if Nigel does his homework.

But people who think it's going to be a stroll in the park are in for a rude awakening. They are a strong team.

It's Stade Francais who've sacked their coaches, not Brive. They (Brive) will be a very difficult outfit to beat but we can do it.

I see. Thought it was a bit strange.

The Brive loosehead looked very useful. Rhys T or Manu will have to be at the top of their game.

We can beat them for sure, it's 15 against 15 at the end of the day, but it'll be no easy task for sure! Confused Brive like they always do, will come fighting, and I expect a highly charged game, with lots of incidents to talk about, and a handful of cards.
 
I want to worry about winning first, before talking about bonus points. Thumbs Up

Here we go again! Same old disease - get one win and we are predicting all sorts of feats. Hold on, bois bach! Building up expectations unrealistically will only serve to get us all grumpy and moaning again, by the middle of the season. Let's give these young guns a good run at the opposition this season, and hope that they are fast-enough learners for it to make a huge difference in our expectations next season.
Ambition is fine but temper it with realism. Let's all hope we can go higher than we expect, and nothing more.

Quite a "British" feel to their team; Andy Goode, Alix Popham, Steve Thompson, Shaun Perry, Jamie Noon & Riki Flutey.
 
Player for player we can match on better each of those IMO.

I wouldnt read in to their results at all.
 
The French are unpredicatble so i think we should prepare as if we were playing Munster Leicester etc etc.
 
A winning start to the Heineken campaign is crucial

Papers this morning reckon Flutey is flying back to UK to have his shoulder examined. They reckon he could be out till the New Year. That would be huge for us if the case.

That is huge. Brive will not be happy. Did this not show up on his medical?

He'll eb a huge loss for them.
