Toulouse bounce back with good win over Montpellier

Toulouse bounce back with good win over Montpellier

Toulouse got over their disappointing Heineken Cup loss to Wasps with a 29-9 midweek win over Montpellier in the Top 14, in what was a game with lots to talk about. Great tries, a few bad misses, and a prop pulling off a sidestep.

The comprehensive four try, bonus point sees the European champions stretching their lead at the top of the table, while Montpellier are now in fifth place, with title aspirations of their own.

Wing Maxime Medard and prop Census Johnston both scored twice. Medards second try came from a superbly timed kick through from David Skrela, who himself kicked three conversions and one penalty on the night.

Big Samoan front rower Johnston, who we saw with an impressive run against Wasps last weekend, showed his deceptive speed again with a lovely try that included a sidestep on the way to the tryline, coming close to colliding with, and probably knocking down, the posts.

Incidentally, he signed a three year extension on his contract earlier in the day.

There were a few missed efforts, including a shocker from Rupeni Caucau over the tryline, but there was plenty of quality so its worth having a watch.
