Sports Mole looks ahead to Sunday's Heineken Cup encounter between Toulon and Sale in France.

Sale Sharks will be out for revenge on Sunday when they take on RC Toulon at the Stade Felix Mayol.

Bryan Redpath's team were beaten 17-6 by the French club at the Salford City Stadium last weekend - their second loss of the tournament.

Meanwhile, Toulon have won all of their three matches in European competition this season.

Maxime Mermoz, Fred Michalak, Davit Kubriashvili and Joe van Niekerk will all start for the hosts as a number of big names, including Jonny Wilkinson, are left on the bench.

Danny Cipriani and Rob Miller are both named in the Sale starting XV and there is also a spot for Aston Croall.
