Lyon claimed their first Top 14 win since February as they ran in four tries to beat Toulon 42-33 on Saturday.
Clermont Auvergne kept the pressure on leaders Toulouse with a 28-13 win over strugglers Agen, Morgan Parra kicking 20 points for the two-time champions.
Bottom club Perpignan claimed their first home win of the season with a 22-16 triumph over Grenoble – the side directly above them in the table.
Enzo Selponi was Perpignan’s hero with 17 points from the tee, while Jonathan Bousquet dotted down for their only try as Gaetan Germain’s efforts were in vain for Grenoble.
Stade Francais also enjoyed a profitable first half in their clash with Castres, running in 29 points to end their opponents’ six game winning streak in all competitions.
After the break Stade could only add three more but it was enough to complete a comfortable 32-16 win.
