Toulouse were merciless in their 83-6 destruction of Pau over the weekend as the hosts blasted their guests with 13 tries. Pau narrowly avoided the whitewash with a meagre two penalties. The best of those scores belonged to Cheslin Kolbe, who finished off a sensational 95-metre team effort.
It’s easy to see that Kolbe’s star is on the rise and his efforts are a big reason Toulouse sit at the top of the table. This weekend was no exception, as he notched up two more tries in the win.
In what some are calling the Top 14 try of the season, Toulouse got things going from their own five-metre line. A cross-kick from the boot of Thomas Ramos connected with Maxime Medard, who then chipped ahead as well.
Moments later, Medard was involved once again with his brilliant no-look pass to Kolbe.

Among the many who scored tries, Kolbe and Ramos led the way with two apiece. Medard also added a try to go along with his assist.
This was an outstanding team try but Kolbe’s finishing form couldn’t be coming at a more welcome time. With the 2019 World Cup just over the horizon, the Springboks must be getting very excited with the way numerous key positions are taking shape.
