Manny Edmonds: Moving closer to the scrum

Bayonne's team once again features former Australia A fly-half Manny Edmonds at scrum-half for the visit of Roma in the Challenge Cup.

Edmonds has played the past two games at the base of the scrum for the French, who have many injuries in the position.

Several first-team regulars are on the bench for the match, including prop Salvatore Perugini and lock Rob Linde, but Italian international fly-half Craig Gower starts.

Roma's side features former Newcastle prop Tino Paoletti as well as former international lock Valerio Bernabo and South African number eight Jonathan Gagiano.
