Paul Sackey's two tries for Toulon against Toulouse

Paul Sackey's two tries for Toulon against Toulouse

Paul Sackey scored twice within a few minutes as Toulon beat top of the table Toulouse 21-9 in their Top 14 meeting in Marseille yesterday. Fellow Englishman Jonny Wilkinson kicked the rest of the points.

It was Toulon's fifth successive win at packed French football champions Marseille's stadium, Stade Velodrome. Thanks to the win, they are now still in contention for a playoff place.

"There is little to say about the first 50 minutes! We just sat back and watched them play," said club president Mourad Boudjellal. "Then the Toulon magic clicked into gear... I think that the unexpected energy of Sackey surprised them," he added.

Sackey scored his first from two bits of pinpoint accuracy, firstly by Wilkinson with a great long pass, and then with the kick ahead that sat up nicely for him to dive on. For his second he somehow got through the Toulouse defence, leaving about four players looking a little confused.

The result leaves Toulon in seventh place, with two tough games to come, against Perpignan and then Montpellier.

Both tries are posted below, as a playlist. The first will play, then the second automatically
