Classic Encounters - All the drama from Toulouse vs Clermont

Classic Encounters - All the drama from Toulouse vs Clermont

Earlier in the week we showed you Aurelien Rougerie's two great tries against Toulouse. After many requests for full highlights of this classic match though, I've decided to bring out this extended footage of the two French Top 14 giants in action.

Clermont put themselves in pole position to finish top of the French championship by beating second placed Toulouse 23-11 to record their fifth successive victory and send them five points clear of their rivals.

Toulouse had a nightmare day as star winger Vincent Clerc suffered what looked like a serious knee injury in the 67th minute when he slipped while trying to avoid a tackle from Aurelien Rougerie, who picked up the loose ball, kicked ahead and eased over the tryline for his second touchdown of the match.

There are also doubts over France flanker Thierry Dussautoir, who left the field early in the first-half after a collision with Clermont second row forward Jamie Cudmore.

Despite the defeat, powerful Toulouse look certain to make the top four and therefore a place in the play-offs where the leading four teams contest the title.
