How to watch the game in Ireland?

All the weekend's games are live on BT Sport, with coverage of Leinster v Toulon kicking off at 5:15pm on Friday evening.

How are Leinster's chances looking?

Leinster enter their last-16 tie off the back of sealing their fourth consecutive Pro14 title. Many of their first-choice players were part of the Irish squad that saw a successful finish to the Six Nations, though injury concerns abound for their first-choice outhalf Johnny Sexton. Irish internationals Garry Ringrose and James Ryan are unavailable through injury.

Their opponents Toulon claimed three consecutive Heineken Cups in the middle of the decade, but are not the same force they used to be, and currently sit 7th in the Top 14 table in France. They fell to a heavy defeat to Scarlets during the shortened pool-stage of the competition.

Are there any other games on?

All four Irish provinces are in action across the Heineken and Challenge Cups this weekend, with all of the games like on BT Sport 3 over the course of the weekend.
