Star turns

Imanol Harinordoquy: Talismanic back-row forward (right) is pushing on in years (32), but still drives his local club from the back of the scrum.

Dimitri Yachvili: The play-making scrum-half. When he plays well, Biarritz play well. If an in-form Yachvili turns up then Connacht are in real trouble.

Current form

Biarritz edged Bordeaux 25-22 despite Bordeaux's late try through Camille Lopez. The win leaves them seventh in the Top 14 table.
