Cardiff Blues v Toulon - Heineken Cup match preview
Cardiff Blues flanker Sam Warburton has been passed fit for Sunday's Heineken Cup clash with Toulon.
The Wales captain was forced off just five minutes into the opening round loss to Sale Sharks after he badly dislocated a finger.
Warburton, though, will appear in an unchanged line-up, with Jamie Roberts also declared fit despite a heavy hit to the ribs in last week's game.
Toulon have made five changes to their line-up - including recalling former Cardiff prop Gethin Jenkins.
Jenkins, who moved from the Blues to Toulon in the summer, joins Mickael Ivaldi and Davit Kubriashvili in a new-look front row, with Juan Fernandez Lobbe also starting in the No 6 jersey.
The sole change in the back division sees Mathieu Bastareaud promoted to the starting XV ahead of the benched Maxime Mermoz.
Jean-Charles Orioli also comes into the squad to provide cover to hooker Ivaldi.
Cardiff Blues: 15 Leigh Halfpenny, 14 Alex Cuthbert, 13 Gavin Evans, 12 Jamie Roberts, 11 Tom James, 10 Ceri Sweeney, 9 Lloyd Williams, 1 Tafa'ao Filise, 2 Marc Breeze, 3 Benoit Bourrust, 4 Bradley Davies, 5 Lou Reed, 6 Josh Navidi, 7 Sam Warburton, 8 Andries Pretorius (c).
Replacements: 16 Andi Kyriacou, 17 Nathan Trevett, 18 Scott Andrews, 19 James Down, 20 Robin Copeland, 21 Lewis Jones, 22 Jason Tovery, 23 Dafydd Hewitt
Toulon: 15 Delon Armitage, 14 Vincent Martin, 13 Mathieu Bastareaud, 12 Matt Giteau, 11 David Smith, 10 Jonny Wilkinson, 9 Frederic Michalak, 1 Gethin Jenkins, 2 Mickael Ivaldi, 3 Davit Kubriashvili, 4 Bakkies Botha, 5 Jocelino Suta, 6 Juan Fernandez Lobbe, 7 Steffon Armitage, 8 Chris Masoe.

What they said...
Cardiff director of rugby Phil Davies
"Toulon, are a powerful unit, a powerful team with world-class players in every position times two.
"They have a galaxy of stars but we also have our own, which is important, and the match will be a great opportunity for us.
"It will be a heck of an occasion to test ourselves against one of the best squads in Europe."
