Having seen off Premiership leaders Leicester at Welford Road on Saturday, Leinster shouldn’t lack confidence against the French giants who booked their passage thanks to their dramatic penalty shootout win over Munster.
“Toulouse look incredibly dangerous,” Cullen said. “Their half-backs (Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack) are two of the best players in the world at the moment.
“It’s a huge week ahead. Hopefully we’ll get a big crowd at the Aviva and we’ll need every bit of energy we can get from that.”
La Rochelle eased past Montpellier 31-19, while Racing comfortably got the better of Sale 41-22, , in Paris to set up a meeting with two Munster men as Munster’s incoming attack coach Mike Prendergast is on the Racing coaching ticket.
