Neither are on the injury list, don’t know if they’ve been playing in the prem though.

Hardy’s daughter and partner tested + for Covid 
Fingers crossed they’re symptom free and not ill with it.
Either way get well soon both.

Always great seeing the players with their little ones after games, might be too soon but hopefully see Kieran with Piper after smashing Bristol.
As long as you win it once, you'll never be forgotten

You have to win the ball first. Very hard to see Scarlets coming close here. There’s just too much power in this Bordeaux side 
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Missing Jalibert at 10, but Trinh-duc is no bad replacement. Moefana at centre is a terrific talent, already capped.

Jalibert on the bench returning from injury. The longer Trinh-duc plays the better for us. Our only chance is to make this a helter skelter frenzy - play with tempo, cherish the ball & don't give it back to them or they will try to strangle us up front. Look out for their full back who is 18 and is being tipped as a future International by many. 

As I have said previously I have zero expectation - this Bordeaux team is one of the top French outfits; I am just so pleased to see our boys on the field. Good luck today bois bach & enjoy the experience.

Got a good feeling about this game it’s time now for the senior players to stand up and be counted.

I hope Sam's family are ok in Tonga after the tsunami. The pictures dont look over dramatic but his family may be elsewhere or on another island.

I just went through the Bordeaux team, and if I'm correct, then Liam has possibly more international caps than their starting XV put together.  I'm quite surprised by that.  Not to say that they won't be good mind you.

They do have a Wo(o)ki(ee) in their backrow though.

That’s a brilliant side we’ve put out. Reservations over scrum time with Shingler in the 2nd row, and don’t ask me why but I don’t really rate Steff Evans as a standout player, in the same mould as Dan Jones he is a competent regional player, for everything Steff Evans does well he does something equally as foolish. Question marks over if they’re fit or not but I’d have Rogers or Conbeer on the wing before him.

He is a bit too loose at times, but I thought he played very well against the Ospreys last time out.

Bordeaux are not top of the French league for nothing. We will have our work cut out to curtail any momentum they build up.

All I ask for is a competitive performance tomorrow.

Statement from Bordeaux:

Three positive cases of Covid-19 having been detected within the Girondin workforce, the staff had to reshuffle their team composition this morning to face the Scarlets.

Following the regulatory antigen tests carried out today within the UBB group due to play the Champions Cup match against the Scarlets this Sunday (4:15 p.m.), three positive cases of Covid-19 have been detected.

As required by the protocol decreed by the EPCR, the club immediately informed the Medical Commission of the competition and the players concerned were placed in isolation.

The staff has therefore made several changes to its team composition. Among them, the positioning in the scrum of Santiago Cordero and the tenure on the wing of Nathanaël Hulleu. Initially replacing, Matthieu Jalibert returned to the starting XV. Finally, Joseph Dweba replaces Clément Maynadier, unavailable for medical reasons unrelated to Covid (back).
