Jerome Porical Perpignan v Treviso

Points machine at the back: Jerome Porical

Having learnt from past lessons, Perpignan have named a full-strength side for their trip to Treviso in the Heineken Cup on Saturday.

Last year the Catalans saw their European campaign derailed in Italy as Treviso claimed a narrow win.

Lying in third place in Pool Five, three point behind Scarlets, USAP know they must take a bonus-point win from this encounter if they hope to qualify for the semi-finals.

Struggling in ten place in the Top 14, Perpignan are looking to Europe to salvage their season and have brought out all their big guns.

David Marty and Maxime Mermoz form an all-international midfield while skipper Nicolas Mas will pack down at tighthead.

Scrummaging specialist Marius Tincu is preferred at hooker to French international Guilhem Guirado with Perry Freshwater completing a powerful front row.
