Bath’s Stooke wary of fallen Euro giants Toulon – Wiltshire Times

Todd Blackadder takes his side to Stade Mayol on Saturday before the teams resume battle back at The Rec next weekend and second row Stooke believes Toulon remain one of the toughest competitors on the continent.

“The Premiership is exceptionally tight so every point you pick up will count towards the goal at the end of the season, which is to reach the play-offs.”

Toulon won the competition three times in a row between 2013 and 2015 but are not enjoying their most stellar season in 2017-18 and are currently down in seventh in the Top 14 table.

Bath are looking to bounce back from last weekend’s 42-29 defeat at Premiership champions Exeter Chiefs.
