Lyon moved to the Pool 2 summit in the European Rugby Challenge Cup on Saturday evening with a hard-fought 21-11 win at the Matmut Stadium de Gerland.
- Flanker Julien Puricelli and winger Jone Tuva scored the only tries of the match for the hosts as Lyon drew level on points with Cardiff Blues at the head of Pool 2, although the Welsh region could move ahead on Sunday when they lock horns with Sale Sharks.
- It was Toulouse, though, who broke the deadlock on seven minutes as scrum-half Sebastien Bezy slotted a penalty kick, before full-back Sofiane Guitoune crossed in the first try of the match to give the visitors an 8-0 lead two minutes later.
- Lyon wrestled their way back into the game and two tries in 14 minutes from Puricelli and Tuva saw the hosts take the lead and a Jonathan Pelessie penalty kick secured a 15-8 advantage at the interval.
- Lionel Beauxis assumed kicking duties in the second period following his introduction to proceedings and pushed Lyon further in front with a penalty kick, before Toulouse's replacement kicker Romain Ntamack hit back for the hosts, but Beauxis closed out with a final three-pointer as the visitors were denied a losing bonus-point.
- Lyon's second victory of the campaign revives their hopes of reaching the quarter-final stages, but it is a result which leaves just two points between top and bottom in Pool 2.
