  • Leinster fans taking over Toulon!  
    4/6/2014 2:36:31 PM
  • We have prepared very well for today and the guys are really confident but this is a massive challenge - Toulon are a fantastic side and we are going to have to be good. We need to be really accurate - we were lucky to come here last year and tiny inaccuracies cost us the game. we can't let Toulon gain momentum - it can get away from you very quickly.
    Leinster head coach Matt O'Connor

  • I think this is a whole team game for Leinster - if they believe they can outrun and that they have more fitness than Toulon - it's not just one person who has to believe that, the whole team has to believe that. 
    Sir Clive Woodward gives some advice for Leinster
    4/6/2014 3:07:54 PM
  • If one team can do it down here then it is Leinster - but when you look at the Toulon bench with players like Bryan Habana and Maxime Mermoz; well they are an all star team. It's a 50/50 game today.

  • Toulon 3-0 Leinster
    Toulon's power is already beginning to show as they bring in their power runners and then Matt Giteau brings a bit of rapier -like pace to the proceedings. he cannot hold onto the ball though and it's a scrum to Leinster.
    4/6/2014 3:37:29 PM
  • Toulon 3-0 Leinster
    Toulon steal a lineout and Danie Roussow drives his legs well into the Leinster 22 - there is a huge overlap on the outside but Rob Kearney reads that very well - A try saving interception! 
    4/6/2014 3:40:46 PM
  • Toulon 3-0 Leinster
    Leinster knock it on and Toulon have a scrum just inside Leinster's 22 - Steffon Armitage picks and makes good yards. the ball goes through the hands but it spills out of the ruck and Leinster clear their lines. A huge relief! 
    4/6/2014 3:43:59 PM

    4/6/2014 3:45:46 PM
  • Toulon 3-0 Leinster
    Leinster get something going of their own though - A little chip from O'Driscoll down the touchline looks like a good move. Delon Armitage has it covered though. O'Driscoll is all over Armitage and Wayne Barnes blows for a high tackle.
    4/6/2014 3:47:43 PM
  • Toulon 3-0 Leinster

  • Toulon 6-6 Leinster
    Toulon should have made more of that. Maxime Mermoz made a wonderful run and went through a few Leinster tackles there - hooker Craig Burden runs a beautiful line and stampedes all over O'Driscoll. they are metres from the line but are penalised for holding on.
    4/6/2014 4:16:37 PM
  • [half-time] Toulon 6-6 Leinster
    Leinster have managed to weather this Toulon storm and  will definitely be the happier of the two teams heading into the break.Too many handling errors in the first half from both sides who are just packed full of quality - hopefully that will show in the second half.
    4/6/2014 4:19:04 PM
