Challenge Cup – Toulon wins with the offensive bonus against Bath and ensures its qualification

On behalf of the third day of the Challenge Cup, the Rugby Club Toulonnais did the job against Bath. In a relocated meeting in Gloucester, the Varois won 35-23 against the English. With four tries scored, the RCT pocketed five new points and continued their great adventure in the Challenge Cup.

Toulon did the job. The Varois had to wait twenty-four additional hours to face Bath after the postponement of the meeting, but everything ended well for the protected duo Azéma-Mignoni.

From the first minute, the Toulonnais undermined the English to be awarded a penalty try, before Thomas Salles went there with his achievement ten minutes later. The locals then reacted to return to the locker room with a score of 15-8 in favor of the RCT.

In the second act, Toulon waited for the hour mark to taste the opposing in-goal. It was Cheslin Kolbe who left to score his team’s third try in the game, that of the break. Except that in a few minutes, Bath will return to the game with two tries signed Matt Gallagher and Ted Hill.

Finally, it was the young second line Adrien Warion who released his team in the dying seconds. A test which ensured the Toulon victory, but above all offered the offensive bonus point to the RCT. With these five new points, the total is now 14 points for the Varois, who end the weekend in second place in Pool 2, behind Cardiff.
