At today's team run, Lineen said: 'the guys we"ve brought in need to get a chance, so they"re getting that this weekend.

'scott Barrow has performed well off the bench and Graeme Morrison is a quality player. We have four real quality centres and I"m excited about the partnership we"ll have in there on Friday night.

'dan Turner gets his chance in the second row. He is a very mobile player and gives us more options in the line-out.

On the opposition, Lineen added: "Viadana will know a lot about us through Calvin Howarth and Garry Law. We are undoubtedly the favourites going into this match, and the guys need to get their heads around that.

"We need to deliver a good win, nothing less will do."
