Toulon claim notable scalp with victory at La Rochelle
Toulon ended La Rochelle’s long unbeaten home run and climbed above their opponents in the Top 14 table with a hard-fought 27-20 win at Stade Marcel-Deflandre on Sunday.
Despite being out-scored three tries to one in the first period, in-form Toulon trailed by just three points at the break as JP Pietersen’s score was supplemented by three penalties from Jonathan Wisniewski.
A Belleau penalty completed the scoring as Toulon climbed to fourth in the table, two places above La Rochelle.
