Ulster suffer heavy Champions Cup defeat in Toulon

DIrish Rugbyefending Champions Toulon confirmed Ulster's exit in Rugby's Champions Cup.

An under-strength Ulster side ran in four tries but still suffered a demoralising 60-22 defeat in the Pool 3 clash at the Stade Mayol.

The Ulster scorers were Paddy Jackson, Jared Payne and Mike McCormish with two tries.

Toulon are the first side to qualify for the quarter-finals while Ulster must defeat Leicester Tigers next Saturday at the Kingspan Stadium to have a chance of finishing above the Scarlets in the final standings.
