Sam Warburton has been declared fit after suffering a dislocation to a finger in last week’s loss to Sale Sharks. Jamie Roberts also starts, having recovered from a heavy hit to the ribs also in last week’s game.
Speaking ahead of the game Davies said,
“We’re aiming to play a brand of rugby that will get our supporters on their feet and keep them entertained and we saw a bit of that last Sunday.
“If we could have played like that for 80 minutes it would have been awesome.
“We need to be more consistent but the hard work that has been put in has been tremendous.
“Toulon, are a powerful unit, a powerful team with world-class players in every position times two.
“They have a galaxy of stars but we also have our own, which is important, and the match will be a great opportunity for us.
“It will be a heck of an occasion to test ourselves against one of the best squads in Europe.
“Their salary cap is three or four times ours but we have a group of young players who are up for the challenge.
‘It’s a great opportunity to get stuck in and try to beat them.
“We want the victory and have the opportunity to do it.”
