Matt Giteau will face off against Dan Carter in the Top 14 final, after Toulon beat Montpellier 27-18 in the semi-final.

Capped Wallabies back Jesse Mogg finished with a double for Montpellier, but it wasn’t enough to send them through to the decider.

Mogg’s tries, coming within five minutes of each other, put Montpellier six points down but a Leigh Halfpenny penalty sealed the result for Toulon.

The Montpellier winger played 64 minutes of the match that included his brace.
