The Scarlets from Wales face probably the most difficult task in European rugby this week, when they travel to the Stade Mayol on Sunday to take on defending champions Toulon in the opening round of Pool 3 fixtures, in the inaugural season of the European Rugby Champions Cup. For Toulon, having won the competition for the past two seasons, which were their first European successes, after having previously lost two Challenge Cup finals, the French club will be looking to become the first side to win three consecutive Champions Cups.

While Toulon are a formidable outfit by any reckoning, and are currently second in the Top 14, they have been beaten on their ground this season, when Stade Francais beat them 24-28 in Round 5 of the Top 14.

However, Scarlets are struggling to win matches this season. Currently lying in seventh position in the PRO12, they have won just two matches so far, although they have also drawn two fixtures. Scoring tries has not been a problem this season, with 17 to their credit in six matches, but they have conceded 14. If their defence is as porous on Sunday as it has been in the PRO12, it could prove to be a long afternoon in the sun of the South of France.
