Harlequins will be looking to maintain their flawless Challenge Cup campaign with a sixth successive victory this Friday. Standing in their way is a star-studded Montpellier side who have endured a torrid season thus far. Jake White’s side are sitting on the precipice of a group stage exit from the competition. They currently occupy second spot in Pool 4 but with the third-placed Cardiff Blues taking on the group’s whipping boys, Rugby Calvisano; Montpellier may find themselves out of the running for one of the best-placed runners-up spots.

Can Montpellier sneak through the back door into the knockout phase or will ‘Quins end the hosts European aspirations?

When last Sunday night rolled around I was moderately pleased with my European Rugby predictions. Despite Toulouse getting rolled over by Ulster and Toulon not clearing the margin I suggested they would I still had a small smile on my face. My tip for Exter to beat Clermont had come in and I was confident Wasps would be able to give Bath a trouncing. How wrong I was. Despite trailing for the majority of the second half, the Men in Blue and White managed to claim a dramatic late win.

Their victory has left things nicely poised in Pool 2 with only six points separating first placed Wasps and third placed Toulon – who still have a game in hand – on the log. With things so tight, the result of this game could have huge ramifications for all the teams in the pool.
