Anthony Belleau was RC Toulon’s hero as he kicked a last-gasp conversion to leave Scarlets with only a losing bonus point to show from a thrilling European Rugby Challenge Cup tie between Pool 2’s leading two teams on Friday.
Despite being reduced to 14 men on the stroke of half-time after a red card for lock Tevita Ratuva, the Welsh region led 16-10 going into the dying seconds following a superb second-half display, which brought penalties for Ryan Lamb and Dan Jones, who also dropped a goal.
However, the pressure of being a man light finally told in the eighth minute of stoppage time, when Toulon’s backs and forwards combined to maul their way over the line 10 metres in from touch.
Sébastien Taofifénua was eventually credited with the try and up stepped centre Belleau to land the ultimate pressure kick, albeit with the help of a post.
Toulon were 10-7 ahead at the break, having taken the lead in the ninth minute, when a cross-kick found right wing Gervais Cordin, who touched down for a try that Belleau converted.
But within five minutes Scarlets were level, after full-back Johnny McNicholl pulled off a brilliant interception try, which Lamb converted.
Belleau then nudged Toulon ahead at the break with a 31st minute penalty and it was the centre who was to prove Scarlets’ nemesis at the end.
Tough to take, but so proud of the players and supporters in Toulon tonight #ynypac pic.twitter.com/MELpAi6dsS
