Leicester Tigers from the Aviva Premiership, may be the only team to defeat the current European Champions, Toulon, in this season's European Rugby Champions Cup, but they travel to Belfast on Saturday to take on Ulster, knowing that nothing less than a try-scoring bonus point win, will give them a chance to progress to the knockout stages.

Even a comprehensive victory against the Irish Province would not assure the Leicester Tigers of progress, as they would still need other results over the weekend to also go their way, in order to finish as one of the three best Pool runners-up, and to make it into the last eight of the tournament.

The Tigers went into last week's game against the Scarlets at Welford Road, knowing that nothing less than five points would suffice, if they were to travel to Ravenhill with any hope of qualifying. Their 40-23 win meant that they had at least accomplished the first part of the target, to get 10 points from their final two fixtures. Ulster's own slim hopes disintegrated in Toulon last weekend, where they were dismantled by the holders, to the tune of 60-22, although they did manage to cross the French club's try line on four occasions.
