Toulon v Munster in numbers

On Sunday at 4.30pm Mr Barnes will signal the kick off of the Toulon v Munster H Cup semi-final at the Vélodrome stadium in Marseille.

Here are the details of the encounter in five key numbers:

1. It will be the first time that the Vélodrome stadium in Marseille has hosted an H Cup Match. The stadium held the final of the Amlin Challenge Cup in 2010 when Cardiff Blues beat Toulon 28-21.

6. Six of the last eight semi-finals have been won by the club with the advantage of playing in their own country.

12. This semi-final will be the twelfth between a French and an Irish club. The French have won six to five.

19. It's 19 years since a final of the H Cup has been played by the same opponents for a second time. This could be the case if Toulon and Clermont qualify this weekend.

79 : The kickers for the two teams, Jonny Wilkinson and Ian Keatley have both scored 79 points in this season's H Cup.
