Pierre Mignoni sings Pilou Pilou after his last match in Toulon

War cry: Toulon backs coach Pierre Mignoni performs the Pilou-Pilou after his last game as a player

The ERC have granted a request from Toulon to perform their traditional war cry, the 'Pilou-Pilou', before Sunday's Heineken Cup semi-final against Saracens at Twickenham.

The war cry, which dates back to the 1940s, sees the club cheerleader use the stadium public address system to blare out the words in a call-and-response pre-game ritual with the Toulon fans.

The French club have confirmed that "l'hurleur", Cédric Abellon, will fly to the English capital with the Toulon team especially for the event.
