Toulouse grab late bonus point score to top their pool

Toulouse winger Yoann Huget goes over

Toulouse bagged a late try to secure a bonus-point 32-17 victory over brave Connacht in Pool 5 of a riveting  Heineken Champions Cup clash at Stade Ernest-Wallon.

The French side trailed 15-17 going into the final quarter but finished strongly to deservedly come out on top.

First full-back Thomas Ramos edged them ahead with a penalty before Jerome Kaino grabbed the decisive try after a spell of pressure and the conversion gave them an eight point cushion.

The home side then landed the knock-out blow in the dying moments when former Connacht man Pita Ahki charged over for a much sought after fourth try.

Connacht gave as good as they got in the opening half despite losing second-rower Colby Fainga to a yellow card for a dangerous tackle on home fly-half Romain Ntamack.

The highlight for the visitors was a stunning try for scrum-half Caolin Blade on his 100th appearance for the club after brilliant approach work by Conor Fitzgerald and Fainga.

Centre Tom Farrell had given Connacht an 11th minute lead when he sliced through a static defence but Toulouse excelled themselves with ball in hand to lead 15-14 at the break.

Scrum-half Sebastien Bezy scored the home side’s opening try when he was on hand to support a brilliant break by full-back Thomas Ramos.

Then with Connacht down to 14-men Toulouse moved the ball wide for winger Yoann Huget to dive in wide out and help give his side a half-time advantage before sealing victory as their pack dominated the final 20 minutes.

Toulouse host Montpellier in their next clash on Sunday, December 8 while Connacht will attempt to get back on track at Gloucester the same afternoon.
