Despite a stirring second half comeback last weekend, Ulster came up just short in the Pool 3 Champions Cup match at Welford Road against the Leicester Tigers. They did at least take a losing bonus point from the match, so their efforts were not entirely in vain.

On Saturday they welcome the winners for the past two seasons Toulon, to Ravenhill in Belfast, in what has become an almost must win match for the Irish Province, who know that two defeats in a Pool means qualification for the quarter finals is unlikely. At best a runner-up spot, and an away fixture in the last eight, is the very best that can be expected. Champions for the past two years, Toulon began their bid for a hat trick of titles, with a home victory against the Scarlets from Wales. Their 28-18 victory however, was not sealed until 10 minutes from time, when Steffon Armitage scored a third try for the home side.

Toulon are currently in second place on the Top 14 table, and only Clermont who top the table, have won as many games away from home this season. However, Ravenhill is a formidable venue for any opponents, as has been proved over the years, and the French outfit may well have to settle for a losing bonus point from their trip to Ireland.
