"Even if we were already in a state of preparation last week, there was much more analysis," he told Midi Olympique. "Now the level of concentration and tension has gone up a notch and it is rather positive.
"The focus of the players and the staff is to remain totally concentrated on the eighty minutes of this final.
"Toulon dominated the championship almost from start to finish and also qualified from a hugely competitive group in this tournament and it is never simple to have another French club in your Pool.
"Toulon have big defence, solid foundations and players of vast experience in every position able to manage this type of event. They are also able to alternate their game, of playing a territorial game, and (Jonny) Wilkinson excels in this area.
"They a big-time team and will try to surprise us. But I think that it is necessary to concentrate on our own game and that a final is played to be won."
