Toulon will be gunning for revenge when they face Clermont in the Top 14 play-off semi-final on Sunday.

Toulon lost to the Auvergne at the same stage two years ago, eventually going down in extra time after a controversial refereeing decision.

Relations between the two sides have hardly improved with Clermont winning both encounters in the regular season - with the January match marred by a huge punch up.

Toulon will go into the game on the back of two nerve-jangling matches - with the Mourad Boudjellal backed side having narrowly lost out to Biarritz in the Amlin Challenge Cup final before rallying from 13-0 down to beat Racing Metro in the opening round of the play-offs.

Clermont, on the other hand, have had three weeks off - and that has seen fly-half David Skrela, Nathan Hines and Julien Malzieu to recover from injuries. However flanker Julien Bonnaire (knee) seems unlikely to make the squad.

Toulon have no new injury worries, although former All Black prop Carl Hayman is serving a four-week ban for a tip tackle.
