6-6

Halfpenny has missed a couple of penalties but Clermont are looking the more accomplished side, even though Tooulon could be ahead now.

Not watching this but it sounds like the game must be happening all in the middle of the park - stalemate?

Clermont must be the only place where it's raining today. Very unlucky on the weather but still doesn't excuse the borefest.

The stakes are high but the entertainment value is low.

Low entertainment is what you get with most games involving Toulon these days. Dogged defence but not much else really.

Commentary just said Samu Manoa (Toulon) broke his arm in the warm-up.

9-9 now. Hard penalty against Clermont but the last one was hard against Toulon, so it's about even.

Clermont try. 16-9

Feels like that might be enough for the win, since Toulon have offered little in attack.

If I'm lucky enough to die of old age, then one of my last thoughts will likely be of how I wasted some of my limited time on earth watching this match.

Sounds like it was a poor game. Hopefully the weather will have improved for the semi final and Clermont's french contingent will have bedded back into the squad. Even for a team like Clermont losing 6 or 7 players to Les Bleus is bound to be difficult to cope with.
Toulon have been poor for most of the season.
It was nice to hear Boudgellal making the right noises in terms of bringing on more French youngsters as Clermont are doing. Of the 10 additions to their first team squad this season, 7 are French with Aaron Jarvis (Wales), Sitaleki Timani(Oz) and Isaia Toeava (NZ) being the only three foreign imports.

3 of French youngsters were on the bench today: Etienne Falgoux (loosehead),  Judicael Cancoriet (flanker) and Damien Penaud (centre).
Clermont vs Leinster will hopefully  be a cracker of a semifinal.
