While the majority of the supporters stayed in Toulouse the squad and management made their way to Montauban, checking into their Crowne Plaza hotel before making the short trip to the match venue for the usual walk around.
Local expectations are for a Montauban victory with media inviting the home side to write a new page in the history of the club by downing the Heineken Cup champions.
