Sextons kicking from hand and Healy's transgressions aside it's been a very good half from Leinster.

Neither look outmuscled or outplayed by the considerably powerful Toulon back row so far. Certainly two of the form selections going into the Six Nations. VDF is stopping arguably the world's best number 8 dead in his tracks off the scrum.

Excellent defensive effort from Leinster to hold out Toulon after Healey's brain flatulence. Still think that Toulon will have just that bit too much.

Toulon, although very savage at the break down, look to be constantly infringing and I can imagine that Owen's will take more notice of that in the 2nd half.

Surprising halftime score but it's been pretty much all Toulon possession. Leinster living off penalties but that won't be enough.

If they get a losing bonus point out of this it would be a great result but can see Toulon pulling away in second especially with their bench.

SOB is always going to be selected ahead of him.

6) Ruddock
7) SOB
8) Heaslip

The starting back row and for Leinster and Ireland this season. Injuries permitting of course.

CJ Stander might be involved in the back row selection. He has been the form player in my opinion.

The main concern for both Leinster and Ireland must be the lack of consistency and form shown by Jonny Sexton. He has become a bit of a liability at times, some of his kicking has just given possession and territory straight back to Toulon at crucial moments.

That's the problem right there Rory, why not drop Heaslip if there is a currently better player?

Anyways, I hope Leinster pull off something in the 2nd half.

Sexton's passing and kicking are way off today. Might be an idea to pull him off and get Madigan on.

Because he is very consistent and he will be the captain.

The funny thing is Leavy would have been seen as the star at u20 level but Vdf has transitioned a lot better. Although that could be down to Leavy being unlucky with injuries as he has showed he is a quality player.

Don't think it'll happen, but I'd haul sexton off, mads at 10 and leave toe and like in the centre, worst sexton has played in ages

Thought Strauss was concussed again for a minute there. Really worried about him.

EDIT: he's off. He needs a massive break from rugby. simply way too many head injuries this season

One sided refereeing from Owens in this second half so far, wonder how much he got under the table at half time.

At this last breakdown, toulon lock had its elbow on the grounf but i guess it's allowed if you are a toulon player.

That is never a late hit, just didn't use his arms as well as he could have done. Would not say its a penalty.

Ben Teo is prone to giving away a lot of penalties around the tackle and ruck area.

The biggest issue for Leinster today has been Sexton, clearly not having a great game and yet wont be swapped until too late.

Sexton is a funny player, you can tell within 15mins whether or not he will have a bad day.

Denton is the luckiest player in pro rugby. Getting to play in the CC against Toulon because he has an Irish granny. This selection policy really is something the IRFU have to look at

Leinster have fought hard but Toulon are a team full of superstars playing at home.
Hope they can get a try at the end here as reward for the effort.

Rhys Ruddock would have been MOTM if Leinster had won. VDF a close second. Exceptional performance from them both.

To be fair, they have been very fortunate at the breakdown. Toulon are very clever and quite subtle, as I said before the tackler is always very slow to roll away and they rarely seem to support their bodyweight.
