While this match took place over a week ago, we felt this try from Toulon's meeting with Perpignan should be shared with rugby fans around the world.
Perpignan snatched victory from Toulon in the 82nd minute with a 40 meter drop goal from scrum half David Ml, disappointing the home crowd who witnessed their side put on a great performance against one of the most powerful teams in the country.
Just two minutes into the match, Toulon took the lead after an electric counter attack from their own 22. Sinoti Sinoti flew down the wing, gassing one player before sensationally stepping another.
The ball was recycled and it was Sbastien Fauqu who summed up the situation perfectly, putting in a nicely placed cross kick which was gathered by Jocelino Suta to finish off a great Toulon try.
After the drop kick though, it was Perpignan who won the match 32-29.
