Toulouse cruise into the Top 14 final with win over Clermont

Toulouse cruise into the Top 14 final with win over Clermont

Toulouse eased to the Top 14 final with a 29-6 win over current champions Clermont at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille. Rupeni Caucaunibuca scored both the tries.

The famous French club will face Montpellier, who narrowly beat Racing Metro yesterday, in the final on June 4th. Over 56 000 fans had turned out expecting a close battle, but Toulouse flexed their muscles and made it an unhappy occasion for Clermont.

From the get-go Toulouse, who topped the table all season, showed their intent with a wonderful flowing passage of play that started behind their own tryline. They were unsuccessful on that occasion, but later on scored through Fijian superstar Rupeni Caucau, who is surely playing his best rugby in years.

Late in the match Clermont looked to get some kind of consolation after Toulouse had pushed the scores apart even further through penalty kicks, but a turnover and sprint from Caucau rubbed salt in the wound.

It wasn't the most amazing game of rugby, but as you'll see in the highlights, the victors showed what an uncompromising outfit they can be,. With such talent to burn out wide, give them a sniff and they'll make you pay, as Clermont learnt on this occasion.

The best bits from the other semi final, the Magners League and Aviva Premiership finals, the Edinburgh Sevens, and Super Rugby, will all follow throughout the course of the next few days. If you saw anything you'd like featured, be sure to leave a note in the requests section.
