Reigning European Champions Toulon, play host to Ulster from the Guinness PRO12 tournament on Saturday at the Stade Mayol, in a fixture that would appear to be something of a foregone conclusion, but which may be anything but. Toulon have a five point lead over the Scarlets and Leicester Tigers, who clash at Welford Road the previous evening, while Saturday’s opponents are already certain of elimination, having secured just six points from their first four Pool matches.

Although Toulon have won all 13 home matches in the European Rugby Champions Cup, Ulster have won on their last two trips to France, and with nothing to lose they may be a very dangerous opponent. In domestic competition, the French club have displayed some stuttering form since the last round of European matches, although they have still managed to find ways of winning their home matches even when under-performing.

Ulster have also been struggling in the PRO12, although they got back to winning ways last weekend, when they travelled to Italy, and survived a fierce second half comeback to defeat Benetton Treviso. The Irish Province will also now have to contend with Toulon’s veteran Springbok lock, Bakkies Botha, who did not as first feared, break his hand when playing against Racing Metro.
