Ruled out: Bakkies Botha

Toulon will be without experienced second-row duo Bakkies Botha and Ali Williams for Sunday's huge showdown with Leinster.

Toulon will be without experienced second-row duo Bakkies Botha and Ali Williams for Sunday's huge Heineken Cup quarter-final with Leinster at Stade Felix-Mayol.

Williams, the former All Black lock, has injured his right bicep and will be sidelined for around two weeks, missing the massive European tie.

The defending champions must also do without 34-year-old Springbok Botha, who fractured the radius bone in his wrist.

Bernard Laporte can, however, call upon 25-year-old flanker Virgile Bruni, who has recovered from injury in time for Sunday's clash.

Meanwhile, Leinster have no fresh injury worries ahead of the matchup, with the Irish Times reporting Matt O'Connor will be able to use Cian Healy, Jack McGrath, Martin Moore, Rhys Ruddock, Dave Kearney and Brian O'Driscoll.
