Pool 2 of the Amlin Challenge Cup takes centre stage on Sunday with all four sides in action.

Newcastle Falcons v Petrarca
(Sunday January 15 KO 15:30)

The Falcons will be looking to put their disappointing Premiership form behind them in European action over the next fortnight as they continue their hunt for a quarter-final spot.

Newcastle find themselves just two points behind leaders Toulon with two rounds of action remaining. 

When the two sides met in Round 2 the Falcons recorded a 34-3 victory over their Italian opponents and will be looking for a similar result ahead of their tie against Lyon in the final weekend.

Petrarca are still hunting for their first victory in this year’s competition and will hope this weekend provides them with that opportunity.

Toulon v Lyon Rugby
(Sunday January 15 KO 18:50)

Pool leaders Toulon host Lyon in an all-French tie on Sunday and know that knock-out rugby is in their own destiny.

Toulon lead the pool by two points from Newcastle Falcons but two victories in their final two matches will see them progress into the quarter-finals.

Lyon have claimed two victories in their first European season but lost at home to Toulon in Round 2 19-26 and will be looking for revenge at Stade Felix-Mayol.
