Bryan Habana has admitted that his Toulon team-mates will not be satisfied with just one trophy this year as they target an unprecedented league and cup double.
The current Top 14 leaders face Munster in the Heineken Cup semi-finals on Sunday and, while no French team have ever won the two competitions in the same season, Habana said Toulon will be "going all out" to make history this year.
"Toulon have got into the Top 14 final twice in the last couple of years and lost both and as special as the Heineken Cup was last year it definitely is a tall ask of any player to go on and win two finals in consecutive weekends," Habana said.
"But that's the beauty of this game, if you want to be seen as the best in the world. If you want to be part of a club that can create history you've got to lay down everything on the line every weekend.
"Doing the double would be something amazing, something historic. I think everyone at this club would love to be a part of that. So we're definitely going to be going all out."
