As we head into another weekend of rugby, here is a quick catch-up on some of the better games in the Top 14 in round six, including a few really good tries, namely from Richard Haughton at Perpignan, and hooker Jean-Charles Orioli for Toulon. 

We've also archived the Best Tries in the Top 14 from Round 5. You can view those here

Toulon really flying, anybody else think its interesting Mischalak at 9 and Wilkinson at 10. When you think back to the 2003 RWC game in the rain when JW outplayed him...

Toulon are indeed looking fantastic this year, the michalak wilko combination is deadly.
They both have amazing game vision but they dont have the same style of play at all, i think they complement eachother very well.

The 9-10-12 axis of Michalak, Wilkinson and Giteau is outrageous. Also, that Toulon hooker, another great front row try.

Toulon really looks to be the "big boys" for the top14 and maybe the H-cup
They aren't this supposed mercenaries team as they have kept the same group since 3 years, and recruit some game leaders with giteau and michalak.

if they haven't major injuries, if they approach the hcup with humility and if boudjellal can keep his mouth shut ;) they can go far

clermont & toulouse will watch behind their ass

I don't think that people consider Toulon a team of mercenaries because the club isn't loyal to the players. They're considered a team of mercenaries because they've almost all been bought from abroad. So it's a team that's been bought, rather than a team that has developed, hence the 'mercenary' name.

And anyway, have they kept the same group for 3 years? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that were loads of players that have come and gone in that time.

They've had a few players come and go, like most teams, and perhaps a few more than most teams, but they have kept quite a few players on and form quite a nice structure... Thats about the extent of my vague knowledge on Toulon though...
