Players to Watch: Montpellier vs Newcastle Falcons

Francois Steyn - Montpellier

Montpellier have been incredibly inconsistent this season but Francois Steyn has been a shining light for the French side in recent times. The Springbok utility back has reverted to his old position of fullback this season and has nothing short of spectacular ever since. His massive boot and strong ball carrying make him a threat Newcastle Falcons can just not ignore.

John Hardie - Newcastle Falcons

The Scotsman has been excellent for Newcastle Falcons since joining the club midway through the season. He has been a welcomed addition to an already strong Falcons back row and has been devasting at the breakdown. His work at the breakdown could be a real threat to Montpellier who will be looking to release the likes of Nemani Nadolo, Jan Serfontein, Johan Goosen and Francois Steyn to name a few.

Paul Willemse - Montpellier

The South African born second rower has been included in France's Six Nations squad and will look to make a big impact off the bench for Montpellier this weekend. Willemse is an exceptional option at lineout time and is likely to knick a few lineouts off Newcastle in the closing minutes of the game.
