  • Full-time: Toulon 24-16 Munster

  • PENALTY, TOULON, WILKINSON. 24-16. Cruel on Munster as replacement Donncha O'Callaghan is penalised for not rolling away. It's Wilkinson for the win. Done.

  • And now Coughlan gives everything in contact as he wins a scrum for his side, holding up Konstantine Mikautadze in the tackle. Munster have to find 60 metres here with three minutes left in Marseille.

  • Over-throw and Toulon soon look to Wilkinson for a vital three points via the drop-goal...charge down from Coughlan. Superb work from the number eight.

  • Earls returns to the field as Munster have a throw just five metres from their own line. How a match can swing in a few seconds in this epic semi-final.

  • Incredible call from Munster as they snub an easy three points and instead punt to touch with nine minutes remaining. It backfires and Toulon escape.

  • It's all Munster now though as they work the phases and finally make it up to the Toulon 22. Zebo looks threatening before the replacements add extra grunt.

  • First Wilkinson, now Giteau sparks cheers from the Toulon supporters as he drills one into the Munster 22. Superb strike that pins the Irish way downfield.

  • PENALTY, TOULON, WILKINSON. 21-16. Never in doubt.

  • YELLOW CARD, MUNSTER, EARLS. Huge swing in momentum again as Earls cuts down Smith after Toulon's pace man hacked into the Munster 22. Wilkinson steps up.

  • Munster are certainly on top right now as O'Connell barks the orders in the Toulon half. A fumble from Murray halts their most recent attack but they've definitely made the French think in these last ten.

  • Munster go close to taking the lead in Marseille as Keatley's long-range penalty attempt drifts wide of the upright. Now, how will Toulon respond to this?

  • CONVERSION, MUNSTER, KEATLEY. 18-16. Excellent kick.

  • TRY, MUNSTER, ZEBO. 18-14. Massive call from Barnes as he doesn't check with the TMO after Zebo dives over in the left corner from Murray's offload. It looked debatable as to whether Zebo grounded that.

  • Could there be a change in fortunes for Munster here as Xavier Chiocci is penalised at the scrum, which leads to Keatley booming one into the Toulon 22? Attacking line-out coming up. Munster smell blood.

  • And they clear with ease after Toulon offend. Here is a change from the French side as Habana is off for David Smith. Quality for quality as expected.

  • So close again as this time Wilkinson's pass to lock Rossouw isn't held with the line at his mercy. It's a Munster scrummage five metres from their own line.

  • Munster are under the cosh here as they now throw the ball around in their own 22 - surely it's too early for the Hail Mary stuff. Toulon might punish the Irish now as they drive on just 20 metres out.

  • Munster have survived two close calls inside two minutes as first Habana was tap tackled on halfway by James Downey and then Steffon Armitage thought he'd scored but replays showed Zebo had the eight's foot in touch. What a defensive effort wide out.

  • Welcome back to Marseille where Toulon are sitting nine points clear of Munster. A massive 40 minutes await as Munster get their kick-off return right.
