Scottish international Nathan Hines insists his Leinster side are in peak condition ahead of Saturday's Heineken Cup semi final clash with three-time champions Toulouse.
The defending champions have rested key players in recent matches, slipping to consecutive Magners League defeats to Connacht and Glasgow Warriors in the process.
But Hines admits the Irish province have had more than one eye on their encounter with the French giants as they welcome back Lions stars Rob Kearney, Brian O’Driscoll and Jamie Heaslip to the starting 15.
And although last year’s Heineken Cup final hero Jonathan Sexton is missing at fly-half after failing to recover from a broken jaw, Hines is adamant Leinster’s squad would be a match for anyone.
“A lot of the lads have been injured or rested in the past ten days so everyone has had a break,” said the former Edinburgh forward.
“We are peaking for this game and training has been good this week. We could not have prepared any better for the challenge.
“We will have to make sure out set-piece and scrum is strong and our tactics won’t change.
“Toulouse are a very good team with a lot of ball players. They have many clever and dangerous players, particularly in their back three so we will have to be strong defensively to shut them down."
