Toulon set a Challenge Cup Final Date with Bristol

Toulon set a Challenge Cup Final Date with Bristol

Toulon and the Bristol Bears will face off in the Challenge Cup Final on Friday, October 16 at the Stade Maurice-David, Aix-en-Provence.

Toulon reached the final of the Challenge Cup for the third time in their history after they claimed a 34-19 victory over the Leicester Tigers.

Toulon remains unbeaten in the competition. Bryce Heem, Gabin Villiere (2) and Facundo Isa all dotted for the hosts who cruised to the victory with Louis Carbonel slotting all six of his shots at goal - including two penalties.

Leicester Tigers meanwhile, struggled to really get going with George Ford having somewhat of an off day. The England pivot nailed his first two attempts from the tee but badly misjudged a kick to touch when Toulon were on the back foot.

Toulon managed to keep the Tigers out for long periods of time but the pressure did tell on two occasions with Nemani Nadolo crashing over Louis Carbonel to score a try while Harry Potter did well to ground the ball in between two Toulon defenders.

Toulon will now return to the TOP14 before their final against Bristol on 16 October while Leicester Tigers' final game of the 2019/20 season will be against Bristol in the Premiership.
