Gurthro Steenkamp and Gert Muller, both seasoned props originally from South Africa, will front up against the Sharks at the Stade Ernest Wallon in Toulouse this evening.

Kiwi hooker Corey Flynn, familiar to many fans from his days with the Crusaders, completes a strong front row. Another former Super Rugby superstar, Blues flyhalf Luke McAlister, will run the backline.

Also look out for the hulking form of French back-rower Imanol Harinordoquy, sure to have an impact off the bench.

Toulouse: 15 Thomas Ramos ; 14 Timoci Matanavou, 13 Arthur Bonneval, 12 Jarrod Poï, 11 Alexis Palisson ; 10 Luke McAlister, 9 David Mélé ; 8 Gregory Lamboley, 7 Gillian Galan, 6 François Cros ; 5 Edwin Maka, 4 Romain Millo ; 3 Gert Muller, 2 Corey Flynn, 1 Gurthro Steenkamp.

Subs(from) : Kakovin, Tolofua, Marchand, Aldegheri, Tialata, Tekori, Manukula, Harinordoquy, Tuinukuafe, Tebaldini, Bouyxou, Tolofua, Bienvenu, Rauga, Kunatani, Billard.

  • Not too sure what to make of that side. Definitely scattered with some quality in between a lot of unknown. But i guess thats what french sides are all like…filled with potential but not sure if it will be shown on the day.

  • Springbok and Sharks flanker Marcell Coetzee is set to join Ulster on a three-year deal from the 2016-17 season.

    According to the Belfast Telegraph, Coetzee will make the move after Super Rugby, with Ulster having been on the hunt for a replacement for Cardiff-bound Nick Williams.

    Although reports last week linked Ryan Kankowski with a move to Belfast, those have since been quashed. Instead, Ulster’s contingent of non-Irish qualified players for next season is expected to be made up of Coetzee, Ruan Pienaar, Franco van der Merwe and Charles Piutau.

  • Should be a fun game to watch. Might not be their strongest team,but it’s not ours either. The guys who will probably play backup will now have a good oppertunity to show the selectors (and fans) what they are capable of

  • @robdylan (Comment 18) : Best of luck with your investigation. Marcell doesn’t strike me as a good liar so ask him straight out and if he blushes mystery solved :mrgreen:

    On another note it must be awesome running into the boys.
