Toulouse can't fail to win
January 13, 2000
Toulouse are poised to create another Heineken Cup landmark - a record crowd for a group match.
The French champions, already through to the quarter-finals for an unrivalled fifth successive tournament, are predicting a crowd of more than 20,000 for their Pool Two clash with Bath at Stadium Toulouse on Saturday.
Munster pulled in a crowd of 15,100 for their quarter-final-clinching victory over Saracens last Saturday but Toulouse are confident of topping that.
"The supporters want to congratulate their team on their success in the Heineken Cup so far and we are expecting a crowd of between 20,000 to 25,000," said team manager Jean-Louis Putinier.
