This year Leinster will have home advantage in the last-four tie but McLaughlin knows the battle upfront will be key on April 30.
"It is another set up," he said.
"Toulouse are a strong from 1 to 15 and we are going to have to up our game from Saturday if we are going to beat them.
"There is some history and we know what its like to play them in a semi-final and having been beaten fairly comprehensively by them at that stage last year so we know what's needed.
"Their pack isn't all that different to Leicester in that they have a very strong set-piece.
"They were on top in the scrums last year and they have a real strong lineout as well. On top of that they pretty much have the French three-quarter line, so it is going to be a serious test."
