Both sides are packed with internationals for this round-of-16 tie
Toulouse v Ulster live stream: How to watch the Champions Cup match from anywhere
Ulster stormed through the European Champions Cup group stages to win all four of their matches, including away in Clermont, and finish second in the Pool A standings behind only Racing 92.
Their reward? A two-legged round-of-16 tie with reigning champions Toulouse! The French giants weren’t able to play all their group games because of Covid, hence they finished seventh in Pool B.
Anyway, it is set to be a cracking match at Le Stadium in Toulouse on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3.15pm UK & Ireland time) and the hosts have picked a raft of Grand Slam winners, including half-backs Romain Ntamack and Antoine Dupont.
Ulster have plenty of international talent in their ranks, too, with Iain Henderson captaining the side from the second row, Duane Vermeulen at No 8 and livewire Michael Lowry at full-back.
When these two met in the opening round of last season’s competition, Toulouse were narrow 29-22 winners at the Kingspan. The French side are favourites again to win this match but they will be conscious of trying to build a decent lead ahead of the second leg in Belfast next weekend as that is a tough place to win.
