IAN MADIGAN has declared that Leinster are ready and able to end Toulon's reign as European champions on Sunday week in Marseille.

Despite concerns over the last remaining Irish province's lack of tries in their win over Bath last Saturday, the inside-centre - who kicked all of their points in an 18-15 success - is bullish about their prospects in France next week.

"I think it's enough time (to improve). I have full belief that the team will be ready and that we'll beat Toulon," said Madigan (left). "We're in a really good place, we beat a very good Bath side who played well on the day without playing to our full potential, that's something I take a huge amount of confidence from.

"We're focusing on the Dragons this week and trying to build momentum that would lead on to the Toulon game."
