Toulouse v Saracens - Live
Full-time: Toulouse 21-11 Saracens
79 That should be that then as Hodgson's attempted drop for the losing bonus flies wide. Seconds remain.
78 That should be that then as Hodgson's attempted drop for the losing bonus flies wide. Seconds remain.
77 The kicking battle is won by Toulouse as that man Doussain pushes the English back to their own line, leading to Wigglesworth struggling to make good distance with his response. Toulouse lineout, 20 out.
73 Good from Hodgson though immediately as he finds territory in open play, pushing Toulouse into their own 22. And here is loosehead Vunipola back from the sin-bin, with Jamie George also on for Brits.
71 A change on either side here as Joe Tekori and Charlie Hodgson come on for Albacete and Farrell. That is a big call from the Saracens coaching staff but possibly the right one as Farrell has struggled.
69 That's the class of Gear as he glides across the turf from his own half, taking his side to within five metres. Luckily for Saracens the play ends with the wing being driven into touch. Safety, just.
66 PENALTY, SARACENS, FARRELL! 18-11! They needed that. Toulouse send on Christopher Tolofua at hooker.
65 Saracens need a score and quickly and a penalty offence from Toulouse helps their cause. What will Farrell go for here? He points to the posts as the English look to close the gap back down to seven.
63 PENALTY, TOULOUSE, DOUSSAIN! 18-8! No mistake this time and it's a vital three points for Toulouse.
62 YELLOW CARD, SARACENS, M VUNIPOLA! The prop goes to the sin-bin for not rolling away. Kick to come.
61 So close from Doussain now off the tee from 45 metres as Saracens offend again. Warning from Rolland.
58 Wise if unsuccessful play from Doussain as he attempts a drop-goal from in front that goes just wide.
56 A slight gain for Saracens as Medard's clearance from his 22 doesn't gain that much ground. Two more changes from the visitors before this lineout 35 out as Duncan Taylor and Ernst Joubert both come on.
53 Changes made by Sarries as Richard Wigglesworth, Matt Stevens and George Kruis all come on ahead of a Brits throw that's pinched. Toulouse subsequently kick clear via Doussain down to the away ten-metre.
51 PENALTY, TOULOUSE, DOUSSAIN! 15-8! Reward for the hosts as a breakdown penalty leads to another three.
49 The pressure is coming on Saracens though as Poitrenaud does well to collect a Doussain kick, which eventually leads to a home put-in. Just five metres out here as the home fans lift the volume again.
46 No, is the answer as Saracens are penalised at the breakdown for holding on. Good work from Toulouse.
45 What's going on in Toulouse? So much class on the field yet now Vermaak boots the ball straight out, meaning we'll come back to the home 22 and a Saracens line-out. Now, can Saracens make this count?
43 A shocking start from Saracens as a catalogue of mistakes leads to Brits booting the ball forwards accidentally and Wyles being caught offside in the aftermath. Luckily, Toulouse knock-on soon after.
41 Welcome back to Stade Ernest Wallon where Toulouse are four points ahead. Get set for a frantic 40.
Half-time: Toulouse 12-8 Saracens
39 And they win a penalty at that aforementioned set-piece which leads to good ball as half-time nears. Saracens are 40 metres out as Hargreaves powers it up before Brits is as busy as ever in the loose.
37 Vital moments here as Saracens look to take this slim deficit into half-time. It seems they need to regroup and take some of the sting out of this tempo. Saracens scrum 40 metres from their own line.
34 PENALTY, TOULOUSE, DOUSSAIN! 12-8! No mistake once again from the fly-half as Toulouse's lead grows.
33 The volume is cranked at Stade Ernest Wallon as Toulouse pile on the pressure just metres from the Saracens line. It all came from Gear skinning Ashton on the left before the French side had carrier after carrier that ultimately resulted in the visitors offending at the breakdown. Kick coming up.
31 PENALTY, TOULOUSE, DOUSSAIN! 9-8! That didn't last long. Billy Vunipola is offside from a De Kock box kick so up steps the Toulouse number ten who makes no mistake to cancel out Farrell's three-pointer.
29 PENALTY, SARACENS, FARRELL! 6-8! Saracens lead once more and it's from a scrum. Great work Johnston.
26 Oh dear. Brits isn't having the best of times at the line-out as this one is not straight. Toulouse have possession back then and are about fifteen metres from the Saracens half. Absorbing start here.
24 Toulouse find themselves pinned on their own line as Farrell's kick puts the squeeze on the hosts. It isn't the best clearance too from Vermaak so it's now Saracens ball just fifteen metres from the line.
22 A good penalty to win at scrum-time for James Johnston against Ferriera that allows Saracens to move back into the Toulouse half with the line-out to come. But it's a shocker from Brits, Toulouse ball.
19 Toulouse are starting to click here as Medard and Huget combine in their own 22 for an interchange that leads to the hosts racing up to the opposition 22. However, the attack ends with a knock-on.
15 PENALTY, TOULOUSE, DOUSSAIN! 6-5! The Frenchmen are back in front as their fly-half coolly slots one.
14 Much better from Toulouse though as that penalty seems to have acted as a catalyst in their revival, with Yoann Huget racing down the right wing up to the 22. Plenty of phases soon follow for Toulouse.
12 Here come Saracens once more but this time pivot Farrell is turned over on the ground via a breakdown penalty. Net result, Doussain can kick Toulouse just over the halfway line with a line-out coming up.
9 Owen Farrell misses the conversion though so it's just a two-point advantage for the travelling side.
7 TRY, SARACENS, ASHTON! 3-5! Saracens catch Toulouse napping as Ashton scoots over on the blindside.
6 Good territory for Saracens still as Chris Ashton's grubber comes off Maxime Medard so it's a five metre line-out in the sunshine. Schalk Brits goes to the tail before the driving maul is set up...
4 Perfect conditions here today as we pack down for the first scrummage, with Saracens having close to 40kg weight advantage. Saracens get a free-kick and go wide to David Strettle who's felled five out.
2 PENALTY, TOULOUSE, DOUSSAIN! 3-0! No mistake from the French international so Toulouse lead early on.
1 Here we go with Toulouse kicking off and winning an immediate penalty thanks to Yannick Nyanga's work.
Chris Wyles replaces Marcelo Bosch at centre in Saracens' only change to the side that beat Gloucester last weekend - the Argentine star misses out with a slight knock. Richard Barrington is on the bench.
Toulouse have made three changes to the side that beat Clermont last week, all in the pack as Clement Poitrenaud keeps his place in midfield with Gael Fickou one of only two backs the bench. French lock Yoann Maestri comes into the second-row while Census Johnston and Chiliboy Ralepelle both start.
The final match of Round Five comes from Stade Ernest Wallon and what a contest we have in store. Toulouse beat Sarries in their previous meeting at Wembley so the English will be hunting revenge today. Can they defeat the French side and take hold of this Pool or will it be Toulouse smiling?
