It's been a challenging few days as travel and one or two technical probems have meant that RD hasn't been updated as often as what you're all used to. Thanks for the patience. For now, lets get things back on track with short highlights from last nights pool 6 Heineken Cup game that produced some excellent tries.
Toulouse beat hosts Glasgow Warriors 28-16 in what was ultimately a comfortable win for the defending champions on a freezing night in Glasgow. They missed out on a bonus point though after failing to capitlise on their 25-16 halftime lead.
"We had a very good first half, but the second half was all about frustration," said Toulouse scrumhalf Byron Kelleher.
"We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to perform to the maximum."
In the first half Glasgow produced a fantastic piece of play as wing Dth Van De Merwe chipped and regathered before offloading for Max Evans to put a deft kick through which Federico Aramburu claimed to go over.
Toulouse weren't to be outdone though as Kelleher snatched a ball off the back of a scrum and darted downfield before linking with the backs who eventually set up Cedric Heymans for a superb counter attacking try.
The win is the third out of three for Toulouse in this years Heineken Cup campaign.
