Toulouse rest Kelleher for Top 14

Toulouse, with one eye on their sixth European Cup final on May 22, have elected to rest Byron Kelleher for the Top 14 semi-final against reigning domestic champions Perpignan on Friday.

Also missing out are the France trio of hooker William Servat, flanker Thierry Dusautoir and winger Vincent Clerc, with the latter named on the bench.

Albert Vernet-Basualdo comes in for Servat, with Finau Maka slotting into the backrow, Fijian Vilimoni Delasau lining up on the wing and youngster Mathieu Bezy wearing the number 9 shirt.

Coach Guy Noves had announced his intention to rotate his players after the 35-12 demolition of Castres in the play-offs last weekend with one eye on the European Cup final against Biarritz.
