BATH will take on three-time winners Toulon in the group stages of the European Champions Cup following this afternoon’s draw.

Todd Blackadder’s side have been pitted alongside the French giants, who won the title three years in succession between 2013 and 2015, in Pool Five.

Despite that stiff test, it is overall a favourable draw for Bath as joining them are reigning Pro12 champions Scarlets and Italian side Benetton Treviso.
