Wilkinson, Giteau and Armitage combine for classic Toulon try vs Glasgow

Wilkinson, Giteau and Armitage combine for classic Toulon try vs Glasgow

Toulon beat Glasgow Warriors 51-28 in an entertaining match at the Stade Felix Mayol, taking a comfortable halftime lead before the visitors launched a comeback. Ten tries were scored, but this one finished by Delon Armitage was the pick of the bunch.

Star studded Toulon blew the Warriors away in the first half with four converted tries, powering away to a 34-0 halftime lead. But Glasgow came back in the second, showing why they are a force in the PRO12, something that key man Jonny Wilkinson said the home side fully expected.

“I wasn’t surprised by the way Glasgow played in the second half,” he said afterwards. “We had watched a lot of video and it had been hugely impressive. They look to me to be a very fit team with a great deal of understanding as well.”

They claimed a four-try bonus point in the second half, showing great character to limit the damage and even looked possibly on track for a come from behind victory. The experience and might of Toulon told though, and the Heineken Cup champions were comfortable with the win in the end.

“We worked hard, built pressure and were able to get easy tries,” said star centre Matt Giteau.

Giteau played a major role in Toulon’s first try, as did Wilkinson, who caught a high ball excellently before a string of quality offloads set fullback Armitage up for a sprint to the corner. It was the try of the match but you can also view other highlights on page two of this post.

In other news, former Springbok and Bath scrumhalf Michael Claassens broke a bone in his hand and will be out for the next six weeks, meaning he will miss the upcoming Heineken Cup second round match against Cardiff, as well as a Top 14 clash with heavyweight’s Toulouse.
