This weekend sees the return of European rugby’s biggest competition in the Heineken Cup with four teams battling it out for their place in the grand final at the Millennium in Cardiff on the 24th May.

Saracens will host French side ASM Clermont Auvergne on Saturday at the Twickenham Stadium, as they bid to make their first ever final.

The Sarries will play in the home of England rugby, instead of their own Allianz Park, as the competition rules state that the match is to be played at a neutral venue in the country of the higher-ranked team.

In the other semi-final, reigning champions Toulon take on the mighty Munster from Ireland at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille on Sunday.

With Toulon looking to become the first French side to win the tournament two years in a row, I look at them and the other semi-finalists to see who is looking good to go all the way.
