    Come kickoff Toulouse will know where they stand in terms of ease of qualification. If Sale win at Cardiff they'll be under severe pressure to get the bp win.

    As things stand they look well set to qualify but defeat against Sale coupled with their win at Cardiff could seriously put those chances in jeopardy especially with Leinster/London Irish well set to pick up 1 of the runner-up spots while the Ospreys or Leicester could well take the other.

    Toulouse's inferior try count isn't doing them any favours either so they really need the Blues to do them a favour and ease the pressure.

    Bonus point win will secure qualification for Toulouse but not going to plan with Browne's try giving Quins a 7-3 lead mid way through the first half.

    Toulouse back in the lead 9-7 but it's only a matter of time before they cross the line, cutting Quins open at will, decision making needs to be better from Toulouse.

    If harlequins can get this, with no losing BP for toulouse, then Cardiff have a very good chance of going through

    well they've scored off the intercept, Heymans putting Fritz through despite the forward pass, although they missed the forward pass in the Quins try so no complaints.

    16-7 Toulouse

    Agree, even if heymans' was much more obvious...
    Situation is looking a bit like Clermont/O's at half time yesterday, with a weaker physical engagement perhaps

    jesus, Guy Noves just paid Nigel Owens a compliement, wonders will never cease! In fairness his tongue was firmly in his cheek!

    1 more try now needed for Toulouse after mullering the Quins scrum, good hands from the backs and easy finish for Heymans.

    28-7 Toulouse.

    Nigel Owens finally sees a forward pass as Poitrenaud had looked to secure the bp and qualification.

    didn't take them long to get it though, lovely chip from Fritz and well taken by Médard to finish it off.
  12. Great game, 7 tries, entertaining rugby from both sides, and Owens allowing the game to flow.
    I thought Monye was a f***ing machine, best winger in NH at the moment.
