We’ve taken a look at the best of Saturday’s domestic action involving EPCR Challenge Cup clubs, with Section Paloise shocking Stade Toulousain in the TOP 14.

Pau pull off shock

EPCR Challenge Cup hopefuls Pau produced a stunning performance to topple five-time Heineken Champions Cup winners Toulouse in on Saturday.

Jack Maddocks was the star of the show for Pau as he dotted down either side of the interval, with Zack Henry contributing an impressive 16 points – four penalties and two conversions – with the boot.

Cardiff see off Munster

In the United Rugby Championship, Cardiff Rugby also bested Heineken Champions Cup opposition in the form of Munster Rugby 20-13 at Cardiff Arms Park.

Aled Summerhill dotted down a 77th minute try to confirm victory, Max Llewellyn and Kristian Dacey previously going over for Cardiff who host CA Brive in the first round of EPCR Challenge Cup action on the weekend of December 9-11.

Scarlets draw with Ospreys

Elsewhere, Scarlets were able to hold off Ospreys in a 23-23 thriller at Parc y Scarlets, the visitors crossing the whitewash in added time to secure the draw.

The hosts, who welcome Aviron Bayonnais in round one of EPCR competition, notched second half tries through Johnny Williams and Sam Costelow, but the late try from Rhys Davies and conversion by Jack Walsh, denied Scarlets victory.

Bristol too good for Wasps

In the Gallagher Premiership there was an inter-pool battle as Bristol Bears of Pool A defeated Wasps of Pool B 23-8 at Coventry Building Society Arena.

Callum Sheedy was in top form for the visitors, who travel to USAP in round one, tallying 18 points in the win – a try, two penalties, two conversions and a drop goal. Magnus Bradbury notched the other try on the afternoon for Bristol Bears.

Wasps, who host Dragons in the opening round in December, responded with a try from Tom Cruse and a lone penalty from Charlie Atkinson.

Newcastle overpowered by Tigers

Meanwhile, Newcastle Falcons fell to a 36-21 defeat to Gallagher Premiership holders Leicester Tigers.

Josh Barton, George McGuigan and Mateo Carreras all crossed the whitewash for Newcastle, who travel to Ireland to take on Connacht Rugby in their opening EPCR fixture.
