TOULOUSE WAS THE SHOCK WINNER AND FINISHED THE TOP 14!
Thanks to a crazy first half, Stade Toulousain won this shock against Toulon, the final score 28 to 8 with the offensive bonus! If the second episode wasn’t high-flying, the first still featured an unlikely Antoine Dupont. Denied bonuses for a while, Toulouse got it back thanks to a last try from Mauvaka. Toulouse is the first in the Top 14 ahead of La Rochelle!
MAUVAAAKA SCORES THE BONUS TRIAL! (ST 28-8 TOU)
Here is the test of Toulouse that allows the recovery of the offensive bonus! On a carried ball, Peato Mauvaka took himself from the group and went flat without opposition! Ramos misses the change, 28 to 8!
YELLOW CARD FOR TOLOFUA (ST 23-8 TOU)
Former Toulouse home Christopher Tolofua picked up a yellow card for a voluntary collapsed maul.

THE TOULONNAISE REACTION! (ST 20-8 TOU)
Toulon finally scored in this match with a great start from Cordin who broke the tackles! Timani fakes the pass, wraps his arms around and tries Luc! In the corner, Serin misses the change, 20 to 8!
Ramos rubs the ball (ST 20-3 TOU)
Not much to look at tonight with three walk failures, Thomas Ramos hustled and dropped a good strike ball. Not the best night at the back / opener in Toulouse.
Almost back, Cros comes out (ST 20-3 TOU)
Strong blow for Toulouse in Cros’ injury exit. Romain Ntamack’s younger brother, Theo, plays!

Great chance for the fourth try for Toulouse with Lebel taking advantage of a favorable rebound! The game rebounds and there is too much but Delibes drops the ball to a great tackle from Parisse!
Toulon stopped in front of the in-goal (ST 20-3 TOU)
Touch to follow for Toulon getting closer to Toulouse’s goal! We sent heavy game into the air but it did not want to succeed in Var.
Game over (ST 20-3 TOU)
Toulon came back into the game well to hold Toulouse scoreless! The game is balanced.
Capuozzo replaces Retière (ST 20-3 TOU)
First game under the Toulouse jersey of Ange Capuozzo who replaced Retière! The Italian international took the wing!
What a great Wainiqolo launch! (ST 20-3 TOU)
It raises in all directions but in this game, Wainiqolo pulls out the extraordinary sticks and reviews the five residents of Toulouse! Got it!
Bad pass from Dupont (ST 20-3 TOU)
The best player in the world can’t be perfect for a whole game! Dupont opens towards Meafou but the pass is in the sock… The Australian colossus is ahead!
TOULOUSE AT THE ERNEST WALLON DEMONSTRATION!
Demonstration at Stade Toulousain against Toulon with three key tries already! Brought by a Dupont on very good nights, Toulouse made a difference thanks to his sticks and his skill with the ball in hand. Lebel, Delibes and Meafou crossed the line. Toulon aren’t going anywhere tonight!
Low speed today (ST 20-3 TOU)
It was more difficult for both teams to set up a movement game because there were a lot of dropped balls!
West made a knock-out (ST 20-3 TOU)
Toulon tried to send the game but West still prevented a forward pass in an attack phase… If it didn’t want it..
Ntamack leaves damage (ST 20-3 TOU)
Strong blow for Toulouse in this euphoria with Ntamack’s injury, hit in the ankle. Jaminet replaces him, Ramos passes the opener!
THE THIRD TEST IN TOULOUSE! (ST 20-3 TOU)
What happened in Ernest-Wallon is amazing! Dupont again uses the stick that goes through his arms, pushes his foot and scrapes the ball in the same action. We opened Meafou quietly to flat, Ramos checked 20 to 3!
The waves of Toulouse break (ST 13-3 TOU)
Fantastic Toulouse sending the game under the inspiration of a Dupont in the legs! Finally, it’s a penalty and Ramos still misses his kick… Three failures in a row!
THE SECOND TOULOUUUSAIN TEST! (ST 13-3 TOU)
What a great inspiration from Dupont on a clearance not inspired by Luc! The best player in the world chose to go straight and surprise the Toulon defense before trying to Delibes! In the corner, Ramos still missed the target, 13 to 3!
LEBEEEEL’S MAGNIFICENT TEST! (ST 8-3 TOU)
The class of Toulouse in an action with the opening of Dupont in Delibes! The center plays fast with Ramos giving Lebel a step up and the winger finishing the action with his supersonic rods! Ramos misses the target!
It goes in all directions (ST 3-3 TOU)
Dupont tries to surprise the Toulon defense but is almost caught! Switch for Varois who sends the wing to Wainiqolo who makes a forward pass!
New penalty for Toulouse (ST 3-3 TOU)
In a good position after a fall from Wainiqolo, the Fijian gives Priso the floor! At the back, Wainiqolo made a mistake with his support.
RAMOS EQUALIZES WITH A STROKE (ST 3-3 TOU)
Penalty for Toulouse after a long tackle! This time, let’s take the points from the ever so accurate Thomas Ramos… who equalized! 3 out of 3!
Great Toulouse scrum (ST 0-3 TOU)
First scrum of the meeting and the Toulouse pack sinks its opponent! Punishment for Ugo Mola’s players and see you soon!
Big comeback from Dupont (ST 0-3 TOU)
Great initiative from Ntmack who passes two defenders but loses the ball! Wainiqolo took advantage and took the hole before Dupont cut in! Keep going Toulon!
