Leicester Tigers and England flanker Tom Croft has stated that his side are confident of success against Toulon's star-studded outfit.

Croft will come up against some familiar English faces in Jonny Wilkinson, Andrew Sheridan and Simon Shaw at the Stade Mayol this weekend, not to mention a number of other world-class talents in the Toulon squad.

However Croft believes that the atmosphere in the Leicester squad means that despite going into the fixture as underdogs, his side have a strong chance of success.

"We are a very tight-knit squad and we always look to build on our performance from the previous week, like we did from Exeter to Northampton and like we will from Northampton to Toulon," said Croft to Sky Sports.

"If you look at their sheet they have some big names, some 'rock stars' on there, but we have got some world-class players from 1 to 23 as well.

"We will go there and make sure we play the game we want to play and not be affected by the environment and atmosphere."
