With this improved success, RC Toulon climbs to first place (28 points) ahead of Racing 92 and Section Paloise.

Hervé put Toulon into orbit

From the kick-off, the RCT confirmed its excellent dispositions in its Mayol lair. From the 4th minute, Enzo Hervé began his festival by scoring Toulon’s first try of the game, transformed by himself (7-0, 4th). Taking advantage of the wind at their backs, the Rouge et Noir asphyxiated a pive and crumbly Paloise Section in defense. The opportunity for Hervé to score a double after a school move and an easily found interval (14-0, 12th). Perfect first twenty minutes for Toulon who added three new points thanks to Hervé’s foot (17-0, 17th). But Pau ended up waking up, pushing his opponent to make a mistake. Ribbans received a yellow card (20th) before a second for Le Corvec (34th).

In the meantime, the Palois also lost a player for ten minutes (Gorgadze, 23rd). A hard blow which did not prevent them from reducing the gap. Served in a corner by Robson, Gailleton resisted Domon’s return to flatten and open the Béarnais counter (17-5, 26th). The men from Piqueronies were doing better but were unable to make their strong points any further. Worse, they were surprised once again, just before the break, Dany Priso, trained at Ussel, scoring Toulon’s third try (24-5, 42nd).

Villière delighted Mayol

Upon returning from the locker room, the headwind condemned the Rouge et Noir to turn their backs in the camp. The mistakes and inaccuracies multiplied until the hour mark. Finally precise, the Palois found the fault thanks to Maddocks (24-10, 60th) after a breakthrough from Zegueur. Simmonds then added three points (24-13, 70th), suggesting an unbreathable end to the match in Toulon’s 22 meters.

Finally, in a final surge of energy, Toulon maximized its forays into the Béarnais camp. Inspired in defense, Gabin Villière delighted Mayol by scoring the fourth try at the conclusion of a 30-meter race (29-13, 75th). In the madness of the last seconds, Pau finally broke down and let the RCT seize the offensive bonus. It was captain Abadie (36-13, 82nd) ​​who completed the fifth success in a row at home for Pierre Mignoni’s team. This struck a big blow against the surprise of the start of the season, the Section Paloise, who will regret their completely failed start to the match.
