Jacques Schutte: Montpellier fly-half

Montpellier have made numerous rotational changes to their side for the Amlin Challenge Cup trip to Madrid on Saturday to face Olympus.

The most significant is the move of utility back Jacques Schutte from right wing to fly-half, where he partners international scrum-half Adrien Tomas.

Madrid have made far fewer changes, as you would expect. Tighthead prop Sebastien Hattori starts ahead of the injured Javier Salazar and there are two changes in the back row, with Mtthew Cook and Juan Gonzalez replacing Cesar Bernasconi and Martin Acena respectively.
