Ulster return to Welford Road on Saturday, the scene of a stunning 22-19 victory in last season's Heineken Cup, which clinched the Pool and a home quarter final for the Irish Province. The Ulstermen have won the last three meetings between the sides over the past three years, and with the reigning champions Toulon, as well as the Scarlets from Wales making up the Pool, both teams will know how important a win is to their chances of making it out of a highly competitive group.

Last January's win, came courtesy of 22 points from Springbok scrum half, Ruan Pienaar. Sadly for Ulster, the man who is so pivotal to the side has been ruled out of the first two rounds on the Champions Cup with a knee injury. That defeat for the Tigers, was their first for seven years in European competition at Welford Road, but they seem highly vulnerable at the moment, given their indifferent form of recent weeks in the Aviva Premiership.
