  • Full-time: Toulouse 21-11 Saracens

  • That should be that then as Hodgson's attempted drop for the losing bonus flies wide. Seconds remain.

  • That should be that then as Hodgson's attempted drop for the losing bonus flies wide. Seconds remain.

  • The kicking battle is won by Toulouse as that man Doussain pushes the English back to their own line, leading to Wigglesworth struggling to make good distance with his response. Toulouse lineout, 20 out.

  • Good from Hodgson though immediately as he finds territory in open play, pushing Toulouse into their own 22. And here is loosehead Vunipola back from the sin-bin, with Jamie George also on for Brits.

  • A change on either side here as Joe Tekori and Charlie Hodgson come on for Albacete and Farrell. That is a big call from the Saracens coaching staff but possibly the right one as Farrell has struggled.

  • That's the class of Gear as he glides across the turf from his own half, taking his side to within five metres. Luckily for Saracens the play ends with the wing being driven into touch. Safety, just.

  • PENALTY, SARACENS, FARRELL! 18-11! They needed that. Toulouse send on Christopher Tolofua at hooker.

  • Saracens need a score and quickly and a penalty offence from Toulouse helps their cause. What will Farrell go for here? He points to the posts as the English look to close the gap back down to seven.

  • PENALTY, TOULOUSE, DOUSSAIN! 18-8! No mistake this time and it's a vital three points for Toulouse.

  • YELLOW CARD, SARACENS, M VUNIPOLA! The prop goes to the sin-bin for not rolling away. Kick to come.

  • So close from Doussain now off the tee from 45 metres as Saracens offend again. Warning from Rolland.

  • Wise if unsuccessful play from Doussain as he attempts a drop-goal from in front that goes just wide.

  • A slight gain for Saracens as Medard's clearance from his 22 doesn't gain that much ground. Two more changes from the visitors before this lineout 35 out as Duncan Taylor and Ernst Joubert both come on.

  • Changes made by Sarries as Richard Wigglesworth, Matt Stevens and George Kruis all come on ahead of a Brits throw that's pinched. Toulouse subsequently kick clear via Doussain down to the away ten-metre.

  • PENALTY, TOULOUSE, DOUSSAIN! 15-8! Reward for the hosts as a breakdown penalty leads to another three.

  • The pressure is coming on Saracens though as Poitrenaud does well to collect a Doussain kick, which eventually leads to a home put-in. Just five metres out here as the home fans lift the volume again.

  • No, is the answer as Saracens are penalised at the breakdown for holding on. Good work from Toulouse.

  • What's going on in Toulouse? So much class on the field yet now Vermaak boots the ball straight out, meaning we'll come back to the home 22 and a Saracens line-out. Now, can Saracens make this count?

  • A shocking start from Saracens as a catalogue of mistakes leads to Brits booting the ball forwards accidentally and Wyles being caught offside in the aftermath. Luckily, Toulouse knock-on soon after.
