The reigning champions began their defence of the title with a disappointing defeat to Bordeaux-Begles on the opening weekend and they had to come from behind to pick up their first points of the campaign.
Fabien Galthie’s side were unable to retain their lead after Romain Taofifenua and Ma’a Nonu were sent to the sin bin, Alivereti Raka touching down on the stroke of half-time to make the most of the two-man advantage.
