Anyone who made the trip for this Challenge Cup match in the first season back after promotion must have had a great weekend. If you want a reminder of probably Saints best ever away performance in Europe have a gander.

thanks Tedge. Will watch this evening. PS very good match. Just checked my diary for 2008 and discovered I went to Toulon by train, why do I not remember? I can remember Biarritz, so why not Toulon? Didn't we play nearly every rugby club in south west France? Clermont, Toulouse, Pau, Montpellier. Who have I missed? They all just merge into one long enjoyable weekend of rugby, french food and bars after match.

It was one helluva trip. Learning the words to Le Pilou Pilou in the Banana Bar before the game & then crowd surfing outside it later.

The weather was stunning so we also had a day on the beach - great memories
