Eight tries to one. Toulouse did not do in detail, this Friday evening, for its first game of the season. Opposed to Toulon in a friendly, he already recites an attractive rugby (52-10) while he has only resumed training for three weeks. Its strong men are already in shape, like Antoine Dupont, Romain Ntamack, Matthis Lebel or Thomas Ramos, all authors of an essay and spectacular gestures. The other four tries were scored by Lucas Tauzin, Alban Placines, Peato Mauvaka and Selevasio Tolofua.
Toulon, he was too diminished by absences (twenty players, and not the least, were missing) to hope to compete. His young players and his recruits lined up on the meadow did not have the collective benchmarks, especially in the ground game, to get by. The RCT still managed to save the honor in the second half thanks to winger Erwan Dridi.
Note that the two teams will meet in two weeks at Ernest-Wallon for the second day of the Top 14.
