Toulouse and Ireland maintain a historic relationship. Its rivalry with Munster is a prime example. Stade Toulouse has played a number of memorable matches in the European Cup and will try to do so this Saturday evening in the knockout stages of the Champions Cup. A look back at the movements of red and black in Ireland in recent seasons.
Munster – Toulouse, Round of 16 2021
A game that has made history. The anthology of the Mathews label against Andrew Conway is not limited to Tichik-Tchak. But that day, Toulouse won for the first time in history, with a score of 40-33 at Thomont Park in Limerick. Despite Damien de Allende’s XXL match and Irish forward package, Toulouse led the team to an extraordinary victory. Dupont-Ntamack hinge, it (already) made a difference.

Ulster – Toulouse, Pool 2020
Toulouse and Ulster opened the 2020-2021 season at King’span Stadium in Belfast, just weeks after Exeter’s victory in the postponed 2020 Champions Cup season. At the end of the game, with a huge hing and strong defense to counter the last Irish attack, Toulouse won a serious 22-29.
Connach – Toulouse, Pool 2020
A group match in Galway in January 2020, which could not impress with the quality of the game. Toulouse won 7-21 to qualify for the quarterfinals. But an interesting situation at the end of the match. Yugo Mola’s men finished 13 for 15, following Johan Hugget’s yellow for unrestricted tackling and Zack Holmes’ red for high tackles. Ironically, match referee Luke Pierce allowed Zack Holmes a red card for a high tackle against Juan Imhoff in the Champions Cup quarter-finals at the Paris Defense Arena a few months ago.
Transfer. Top 14.
Leinster – Toulouse, Semi Final 2019
Having already faced off twice in the group stages, Dubliners and Toulouse found beauty in declaring themselves an anthology competition. And the quality also rose with expectations. The more experienced Irish took on their opponents to qualify for the final (30-12). Stade Toulouse later learned a lot from this defeat.
Munster – Toulouse, Quarter Final 2017
A shipwreck. Defeat 41-16. Insult to the history club in the European Cup. Toulouse collapsed following this meeting in the top 14. But above all, it was the players’ behavior that made people talk. There is little concern on the ground, more after the match. That day the ink flowed, and before the arrival of Didier Lacroix as president of the club, the era of the Rene Booscottel in Stade Toulouse ended.
Champions Cup. UBB We imagined Christoph Urios’ muscle speech before the return match
The defeat in Belfast in 2015, the elimination in the quarter-finals in Limerick in 2014, but above all, we will remember the semi-final of Anthology in 2011 against Leinster in Dublin. Both teams, at the height of their game, responded to the setback. The Irish steamroller eventually took over entrepreneurs Toulouse, but did not succeed at the right time. We can expect Saturday’s game against Ulster to be different.
