This evening in Paris, Bristol take on French mega club Stade Francais in the Heineken Cup. Here's what happened when the two sides met back in November.
Can we triumph again? It seems unlikely. Stade will have been waiting for this chance to put Bristol back in their place, and their home record commands respect.
Nevertheless, I will make my way to the pub with a couple of other exiles to see what transpires. In sport anything is possible - and we are Bris, after all.
