Jordan Crane Leicester Tigers AVP 2012

In our hands: Jordan Crane

Leicester number eight Jordan Crane is expecting a classic Heineken Cup clash when his side face Toulouse on Sunday.

Both sides are separated by only two points at the top of Pool Two. A win for Leicester would see them leapfrog the French side into first place and qualify for the knockout stages.

Leicester were knocked out in the group stages last year after losses against Ulster and Clermont, but this time destiny is in their hands.

Crane returned to the Tigers side after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with injury last season, and says that the atmosphere at Welford road in front of a sold-out crowd will be truly special.

"You can't ask for anything better than a sell-out at Welford Road and the chance to go through to a Heineken Cup quarter-final," said Crane to the club's website.

"It's going to be special and one of those Heineken Cup occasions that you probably won't forget.

"We can't wait. If you had given us this opportunity at the start of the group stages we would have taken it - in our own hands at Welford Road and I think with the fans behind us we have got every chance of going through."
