Edinburgh pulled off one of the biggest victories in its club history at the weekend after Richard Cockerill’s side stunned three-times European champions Toulon at BT Murrayfield.

It is the latest in a number of dismal defeats for Toulon, who boasted All Blacks duo Malakai Fekitoa and Julian Savea but could not stop the home side romping to a 40-14 victory.

Ben Toolis and Henry Pyrgos bagged first half tries as the Scots raced to a 26-7 half-time lead.

Romain Taofifienua and Daniel Ikpefan touched down for the visitors, but they were well and truly beaten on the day and their European hopes lie in tatters with a second defeat in a row.
