Toulouse's Gregory Lamboley nearly didn't make Sunday's Heineken Cup semi-final against Leicester after discovering that his passport has expired.
The talented backrower had to take a break from training on Tuesday to fill in the necessary paperwork, which was then rushed to the authorities. Lamboley's passport should be ready for travel on Saturday morning with the rest of the squad.

Fitness tests will decide the final lineup.
