The Sharks travel from South Africa to take on Toulon at the Stade Mayol on Thursday, in a North versus South Challenge match. The South African side, who were last season's Super XV Conference winners are building towards the start of this season's Super Rugby campaign, which for them begins on 14th February at Kings Park in Durban, against the Cheetahs.

Under normal circumstances, a matchup against the four time French Champions club, and winners of the European Cup for the past two seasons, would be one of the most anticipated fixtures of the season. Unfortunately, the Sharks arrive in France at a time when Toulon will be at less than full strength.

The 6-Nations Championship begins in Europe this weekend, along with the U20's version of the tournament, and Toulon will be shorn of a number of star players as a result. However, such is the depth of their squad, and with players drawn from all around the globe, they will still present their visitors with a significant challenge. Toulon moved back to join Clermont and Stade Francais at the head of the Top 14 table last weekend with a lack lustre display at home to Bayonne, while the Sharks played a couple of short warm up games against club teams, beating Rovers 55-0 and Collegians 49-0.
