Sharks' Director of Rugby Bryan Redpath said, "We gained a lot of confidence from the last twenty five minutes last weekend, but not many teams go to France and win against the top six, no matter how well you've been playing.
"It's a hugely challenging task for us, but one to which we're looking forward. We need to maintain that level of performance and accuracy for longer. There was a fifteen minute spell against Cardiff where we conceded three tries last Sunday, which nearly ruined a lot of things for us. We're looking to push on and be better this weekend."
