Redpath targets Heineken Cup place

Gloucester head coach Bryan Redpath views the Amlin Challenge Cup as his side's route into the Heineken Cup.

The Cherry and Whites face Pool Five leaders La Rochelle at Kingsholm on Sunday knowing victory will lift them to the summit.

"It is only a job half done and tomorrow (Sunday) is huge for us," said Redpath. "The big thing is the result over at La Rochelle means we have given ourselves a chance to be in the mix to win the group. Now tomorrow's return game represents the next match and hopefully another step towards the opportunity to win a trophy and get to the Heineken Cup for next season."

Gloucester have made six changes, among them dead leg victims James Simpson-Daniel and Olly Morgan being replaced by Freddie Burns and Charlie Sharples.
