Juan Martín Hernández to start at flyhalf vs Brive

After having last weekend off, Argentine international flyhalf, Juan Martín Hernández returns to Top 14 action. He is to play at flyhalf for Racing Metro in what is to be his third appearance of the season for the Paris based club. In his other two appearances, Hernández played at fullback on both occasions. His selection at flyhalf sees Racing Metro´s flyhalf for the majority of the 2010-2011 season, Jonathan Wisniewski named on the bench. Curiously, Hernández is to form a 10-12 combination with former Stade Français teammate, Guillaume Bousses who has joined Racing Metro this season. Hernández will also be in company with some of his countrymen with forfmer Argentine international tighthead prop, Juan Orlandi named to start in the 3 shirt for Racing Metro while Los Pumas Rugby World Cup 2011 winger, Juan Imhoff named to start on the left wing for the second week running after making his debut in last weekends win over Castres.

The Parsians are to play Brive on Friday in the second of a two match away leg run. Both sides sit in middle of the standings with Racing Metro in sixth place on 21 points and Brive in seventh place on 18. Despite the game being played in Brive, Racing Metro enter as favorites. Brive have named two former Pumas props in the team for the encounter with Pablo Cardinalo starting at tighthead prop and Pablo Henn named on the bench. Scrumhalf, Agustín Figuerola has been left out of the team as he continues his recovery from injury.
