Toulon must conclude their Champions Cup pool commitments without the services of injured flank Charles Ollivon.

While there are fears the Frenchman could miss the start of the Six Nations, Toulon presdident Mourad Boudjellal told AFP the injury "wasn't very serious".

Toulon face reigning champions Saracens on the road in round five of the Champions Cup before hosting Sale in their pool finale.
