Defending European Rugby Champions Cup Toulon, may have already secured their quarter-final place in this season's tournament, the only side to do so after five rounds of qualifying matches, but they realise the importance of securing home advantage in the knockout phase.

For that very reason, the Scarlets can expect a pumped up French outfit to arrive at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday for the final Pool 3 fixture of the season, for both sides. Toulon clinched their place in the last eight when the thrashed Ulster in the South of France last weekend by 60-22, ensuring that they maintained their remarkable record of making it into the knockout stage of the premier European competition on each occasion that they have entered.

The only blip on their qualifying campaign, was defeat at Welford Road to the Leicester Tigers, but they have fonder memories of Wales, where they retained their title last season, beating Saracens at the Millennium Stadium. They did however, suffer a Pool defeat in the Principality last season, when they were beaten by the Cardiff Blues at the Arms Park. Scarlets are currently in third place in the Pool, with two wins to their name, having won both their previous home fixtures, against the Tigers and Ulster. However, they have failed to register a single bonus point this season of any description.
