Worcester should have a relatively easy ride through to the Challenge Cup semi-finals against Montpellier on Saturday, as the HÃ©raults are missing a number of their big guns.
Young starlet fly-half FranÃ§ois Trinh-Duc is missing with injury, and there is no place in the matchday 22 for number eight Louis Picamoles, and no starting place for promising scrum-half Julien Tomas.
Young international flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo captains the team, which will be marshalled from fly-half by Argentinian FÃ©dÃ©rico Todeschini. Another Puma, Olivier Sarramea, is on the wing, and there is a monster of a prop in Tongan Philemon Toleafoa.
Worcester have included their New Zealand trio of Rico Gear, Sam Tuitupou, Greg Rawlinson, and Tongan hooker Aleki Lutui.
The Warriors have a couple of monsters of their own in prop Tevita Taumoepeau and back-rower Gavin Quinnell on the bench.
