The Cardiff Blues had traveled to France last weekend to take on the all stars of Toulon, with high hopes that they could secure the victory that would put them in control of Pool 2, and of their own destiny in this season's Heineken Cup

However, despite taking an early lead in Nice, and taking the game to Toulon, they encountered a French juggernaut at its most runaway best. Eventually succumbing amongst a flurry of yellow cards, by 43-20, including three penalties tries.

The Blues still retain a slight hope of making the quarter finals, as the two best runners up from the six Pools also qualify for the knockout stages. Although the runner up from Pool 5, which will be either Leicester or Ulster, will secure one of those places, the second is wide open, and a five point maximum at the Arms Park against the Exeter Chiefs, will see the Blues very much in the mix.

The first meeting between the sides, at Sandy Park, was probably the highlight of the season so far for the Chiefs, as they blitzed the Blues, and despite a spirited second half comeback from the Welsh Region, the Chiefs ran out 44-29 winners, with six tried to their credit.
