Toulon effectively knocked Perpignan out of the French Top 14 play-offs race with a convincing 43-12 win at Stade Felix Mayol on Saturday.
While news broke today that Gavin Henson has been sacked from the club, Toulon showed on the weekend that he won't be missed as they racked up an impressive bonus-point win, scoring four tries and getting some revenge for their loss in the Heineken Cup.
As you'll see in these comprehensive highlights, the match was packed with big tackling, great skill, and plenty of ambition. Rudi Wulf in particular stood out as a repeat assassin.
Gabi Lovobalavu also showed how dangerous he can be in midfield, and Jonny Wilkinson and Felipe Contepomi both produced some neat touches, and solid goal kicking.
The following highlights are longer than usual, but if you have 15 minutes to spare it worth watching as there was some great rugby on show. If you've only got 3 minutes, make sure you catch the big hit by Wulf early on.
