Tadhg Furlong expresses his excitement ahead of tonight’s Champions Cup clash with Montpellier which has already started.

It’s a chance for us to book a quarter-final spot if we win and a chance to right a few wrongs from the game over there as well. It’s a huge game for us and one we’re really looking forward to.

“It would be huge if we could get through, it was disappointing last year. There’s a lot of young fellas like myself that got a first start last year against Bath and we definitely learned a lot from the campaign.”
