  • FULL-TIME: TOULON 43-20 CARDIFF BLUES

  • CONVERSION, TOULON, WILKINSON! 43-20 Wilkinson rounds things off with conversion number four; the whistle sounds the end of this clash. Hard one to take for the Blues, but three penalty tries have sent the champions into the next round of the Heineken Cup.

    80
  • TRY, TOULON, PENALTY! 41-20 Third penalty try as the scrum heads for the sticks. Bonus point secured for the hosts; they're into the quarter finals.

    80
  • Penalty number four by my count on the Blues' five metre line. It's a tap and go. One minute to play. Yet ANOTHER penalty for Toulon as Copeland strays offside, and he is the third Cardiff player in the bin.

    80
  • The rumble and the roll takes the champions to within a metre of a five-point win, and they have another penalty. Scrum called.

    78
  • Toulon pressing for the bonus point again, they have a penalty five metres out. Wilkinson goes to the corner after some debate.

    76
  • Final stages here in Nice, things just petering out as both teams make a barrage of substitutes.

    74
  • CONVERSION, CARDIFF BLUES, HALFPENNY! The full-back slots from out wide

    72
  • TRY, CARDIFF BLUES, ELLIS JENKINS! 36-18 Jenkins bundles over for a Blues try.

    71
  • Brace of penalties for the visitors five metres from the Toulon 22; bizarrely, no yellow card shown by Mr Garner. Davies punts out at the corner.

    69
  • Blues building some phases in midfield, breaking down the home defence nicely with Halfpenny and Cuthbert looking sharp.

    67
  • Blues clear downfield, Toulon lineout on halfway.

    64
  • A bit of aerial ping-pong gives the Blues possession in their own 22, but they kick out on the full.

    60
  • Toulon pressing for the bonus point try, but Giteau loses possession in the tackle five metres out. Ellis Jenkins returning for the visitors, who are now back up to their full compliment.

    58
  • Yet another Toulon scrum penalty, Wilkinson kicks down into the 22.

    56
  • The razzle-dazzle in this Toulon side is well and truly on show, now. Bourrust is back on the pitch for the Blues, who find themselves facing a tough final twenty-five minutes.

    55
  • TRY, TOULON, SMITH! This game is over. The flood gates have well and truly opened as the Blues are reduced to 13 men. Good vision from Wilkinson to exploit the space out wide, and Smith powers over for try number three. Toulon absolutely flying now.

    52
  • CONVERSION, TOULON, WILKINSON! 29-13 No problems for Wilkinson once more.

    49
  • TRY, TOULON, PENALTY! 27-13 Second penalty try for Toulon as the driving maul powers through and is collapsed by Ellis Jenkins - who is binned for his troubles.

    48
  • CONVERSION, TOULON, WILKINSON! 22-13 Simple two points for Wilkinson.
