One bonus point brought back from Oyonnax
The early minutes of Oyonnax vs Toulon were spectacular: the home team scored a try at the 5th minute through Grice, but Van der Merwe responded with another try, two minutes later. Eventually, our men in red and black lost the game in the dying moments because of a try by Sykes at the 79th minute, then converted by Botica.
Victory was snatched from the hands of the brave Toulon players, who had done everything to earn it: Fekitoa had scored a try at the 54th minute and Belleau had kicked in a penalty at the 72nd. They were leading 22-26 a few minutes before the end…
Toulon will have regrets, all the more so as they could not keep the ball long enough, but they still earn a bonus point for a narrow defeat, as they eventually lost 29-26.
