    Saracens hooker Schalk Brits will be back in action against Toulon at Vicarage Road on Thursday evening.

    This is a must win match for Brendan Venter's men if they want to reach the Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-finals.

    Derick Hougaard will start at pivot, Wikus van Heerden gets a rest giving Justin Melck a run whilst Neil de Kock is set to start for the first time since November after recovering from an ankle injury.

    "The current pool three table sees Toulon have a five point advantage on us, so it's pretty clear that we need to get the win if we are to maintain our hopes of making the knockout stages of the competition," Venter told the Hullingdon and Uxbridge Times.

    "Toulon have some very good players and we are keen to make up for our defeat in the South of France earlier in the season. But we have some great players of our own and we will concentrate on our game and do what we need to do to get the win."
