    Such is the magnitude of this game that Toulouse have moved it to the Stade Municipale.

    If Loffreda is to be believed then more of the same is to be expected as a win would see Leicester firmly in control of this pool and he brings back in Lewis Moody and Geordan Murphy for the return trip to the south of France. Martin Castrogiovanni starts at tighthead prop, with Ben Kay and James Hamilton named in the second row and George Chuter returning to the starting line-up at hooker. Seru Rabeni comes into the side on the right wing, with Ollie Smith moving back to outside centre.

    Guy Noves brings in Ellisalde at scrum-half and in the pack Omar Hasan starts ahead of Jean Baptiste Poux.

    So after last weekend's tight encounter at Welford Road are we in for more of the same or will the shackles be released???

    Toulouse look awesome when they get their rhythm going.

    I'd have given Clerc that first TMO try - anyone else? He's a brilliant player. And great to see Jauzion back to his best.

    Both Murphys played well for tigers. Not convinced by Rambini - they've figured out his "trick" of blasting straight in to the defence.

    Jauzion was impressive and had a lof of influence on the game of Toulouse. Unfortunately he has broken one of his hands during this match and he should be out for two months. That's likely that he won't play the 6N, so we should not see him with a blue jerzey before next November.
