French halfback Antoine Dupont has pulled off a miraculous try assist for Toulouse in their 48-24 pummelling of Stade Francais in the Top 14.


His skill was once again on display as he miraculously tapped on a bouncing ball in the backfield after a clearing kick from Thomas Ramos. An awkward bounce meant the Stade Francais backfield over ran the ball, while a streaking Dupont hit the ball towards his outside winger with one hand.

Stade Francais’ defence was left stunned as the tap-on pass landed perfectly into winger Matthis Lebel’s arms, who streaked away to finish off the 90-metre movement that began under Toulouse’s goal posts. The try was his second of the match and a league-leading eighth this season.

The tap-on was reviewed by the TMO for a potential forward pass before being upheld. Toulouse scored seven tries in the rout, claiming their 10th win of the season and sixth straight while Dupont also bagged a try for himself.

The win over fifth-placed Stage gave them top position in the Top 14 as they chase a record 21st championship in the Top 14.

Dupont recently was named Player of the Tournament for the 2020 Six Nations, becoming the first ever French player to win the award.
