Ben Youngs has described Saturday's European Rugby Champions Cup trip to defending European champions Toulon as "the ultimate challenge".

Tigers became the first English team to beat Toulon, the current Top 14 league leaders and defending champions, in the top tier of European rugby with Sunday’s 25-21 success at Welford Road.
Now Richard Cockerill’s men are preparing to travel to Stade Mayol where Toulon, who are aiming for a third successive title, are unbeaten in the European Cup, winning all 11 of their home games.
Youngs, who received a bottle of Champagne after being named the Spire Man of the Match after Sunday’s Round Three win, says it’s a task the squad are looking forward to taking on
“Toulon are a very good team and they are obviously going for a third title,” says the England international scrum-half.
“We have to take it game by game. We have the ultimate challenge going to their place this weekend and it’s going to be a very tough task but it’s one the players are looking forward to.”
