Toulon alert for Bradley

TOULON coach Philippe Saint-Andre has warned Connacht that his side won't relent in their quest for a Bouclier de Brennus and Amlin Challenge Cup double.

The moneyed outfit, who feature Jonny Wilkinson and Felipe Contepomi amongst their ranks, are flying high in the Top 14 and eager to progress past the Irish province in their upcoming Challenge Cup semi-final.

"We're taking the Challenge Cup very seriously. It's a good competition," said Saint-Andre after his side ran in five tries to beat Scarlets 38-12.

"It's a good step. I remember with Sale we won the Challenge Cup and then went on to win the English league.

"At the beginning of the season we set two targets of finishing in the top six in the French league and reaching the quarter-finals of the Amlin Challenge Cup.

"You have a lot of teams in the Challenge Cup that go on to do more. If we can do something like that this year and get some silverware it will be great for the players and for the club."
