Watch: French halfback Antoine Dupont shows why he's the world's best with stunning tap-on try assist
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.
