If Christophe Urios, the manager of ASM Clermont Auvergne, has decided to keep the entire pack which won last week in Montpellier, he has however recorded two returns in his line of attack: those of Alivereti Raka, who was absent for personal reasons last week), and Alex Newsome who returns to the full-back position. The Sébastien Bezy-Benjamin Urdapilleta hinge is maintained, as is the pair of centers George Moala-Julien Hériteau. Note that Pierre Fouyssac and Daniel Bibi Biziwu are back in the Auvergne group.
