Racing Metro cruise to victory over Toulouse in Paris

Racing Metro eased to a 43-21 home win over rivals Toulouse in Paris on Saturday, scoring three unanswered tries and closing the gap at the top of the Top 14 table to just a single point.

The bonus point victory came from tries to Julien Saubade, John Leoo, and Sebastien Chabal. Flyhalf Jonathan Wisniewski kicked six penalties and two conversions, as well as an impressive long range drop goal.

Freddie Michalak kicked seven penalties for the visitors for a personal haul of 21 points.

"I would like to congratulate my players because they remained alert for the whole 80 minutes," said Racing's sporting director Pierre Berbizier.

"It is really a wonderful win. I hope we can continue on this level. Our next challenge is to keep our feet on the ground."

Chabal, who was criticised for his performances for France of late, came off the bench and scored shortly after with a powerful charge from the base of the scrum, driving up and through French captain Thierry Dusautoir.
