With a final score of 25-16, application, decision, accuracy, Toulon played against the Saracens at Felix Mayol and won the French-French final in the Challenge Cup final against LOU Rugby in two weeks.

Despite Gabin Villière’s (second) quick attempt, Turon, who lags behind the score for a significant part of the first period, was the author of many errors. However, they returned to the locker room in an advantage over their British opponent (15-13).

Second period of savings

However, he had a completely different face in the second half. Much more disciplined, Varois took the game on their own. On every good shot, French international winger Gabin Villière recorded his second try (52nd) and continued the show after the break.

Excellent work from the third line of RCT to set up and provide very quickly. The ball arrives alone on his wings in Villiere's arms, ending this spectacular Toulon movement.  Carbonel misses the conversion, but in half time it's 15-13 for the locals.

The third attempt at the RCT was scored by Jiuta Wainiqolo, three-quarters of the Fijian wing. He began to mystery the three defenders to score under the post. Thanks to the transformation of Louis Carbonel, RCT players were able to take a 9-point lead and withstand the British waves more gently.
