Six Nations has time off but Europe's top competition goes into its second week.

That means that clubs have a chance to get stuck into one another.

The top clash is between Georgia and Germany in Tbilisi - a top one after Germany's surprise victory over Romania in Round 1.

Spain beat Russia in Madrid last week and are sure to give Romania a tough time in Bucharest where the temperature reached -20.

The match is scheduled for Stadionul Arcul de Triumf where snow is being moved. In fact, the match may have to be moved.
