While having a look around for some of the best clips to show you this week, there's a try that was scored in the Top 14 by Stade Francais against Toulouse, finished by Mathieu Bastareaud, that definitely needs to be seen.
Stade Francais hosted table topping Toulouse in what turned out to be a surprise result with the home side trouncing the league leaders 31-3. Tries were scored for Stade by Julien Arias, James Haskell, and Mathieu Bastareaud.
Julien Dupuy slotted six kicks at goal as the mid table side, dressed in their infamous pink leopard skin ensemble, romped home for their biggest win of the season, allowing them to stay in the hunt for a play-off place.
The Parisians were down to fourteen men for ten minutes when Ollie Phillips was carded after what looked like some play-acting by Cedric Heymans, but it didn't stop them and after a great counter attack from deep by Toulouse, Stade did the same right back to produce the try of the game, finished by Bastareaud.
All the tries are included in this clip though, so enjoy, and if there was anything else you spotted in the Top 14 this past weekend that you think should be featured on here, please feel free to get in touch and we'll take it from there.
