Yeah- they're not easy to love! Sneery and cynically well-practiced in the 'dark arts.' But they are very good too- while Glasgow are naive and over emotional in contrast.

But I'd love it- LOVE it, if we [ultimately] beat them to win a fifth trophy!

Didn’t like the way itoge billy and Farrell rubbed Glasgow’s noses at end of 1st half laughing at them. It shows a lack of class

Stunning performance from Dupont at the weekend. Switched to 10 in the second half.

Let's hope Toulouse are not on this form in January.

Bestpart of that clip from a Leinster perspective was the Perpignan maul work against that Toulouse.

But Dupont looks scary at either 9 or 10. He has real pace and is electric in open field.

Dupont is overrated. If you're French and have a step/can pass the ball, people will wax lyrical. You also have to remember that Perpignan are by far the worst team in the Top 14.

After an injury like his, you never know if the pace will still be there. If anything, he looks faster.
I wasn't paying that much attention to him when he came on against us, but he was at the centre of everything in the game this weekend.

I'd say they will fancy taking a shot at us in January. I know a good few Toulouse fans and they're still bitter about losing the semi-final in Landsdowne Road in 2011. They think they wuz robbed. They're not as bitter as about the 2008 final though. That said, they did a pretty good impression of imitating Munster's performance that day in the last two minutes against us.

A lot will be determined by the double-headers, as always. Toulouse play Clermont just before Christman and Agen - A the week before us followed by Grenoble immediately after Bath in the week leading into 6N. If they do well in the double-header against Wasps, their home game against Clermont will be a table-thumper and Agen and Grenoble games will be parked.

OTOH, if things don't go well against Wasps, all those Top14 fixtures will have added pressure and Les Toulasaines will want points, not just good performances against reigning Champions. Here's hoping.......
