Toulouse wakes up in the second half
Stade Toulousain resumed their game in hand in the second half thanks to a test by Maxime Médard from the start. Dominators in melee, the Toulousains crack the Perpignanais. Antoine Miquel grabs the ball during a Perpignan scrum and flattens (66th).
The Perpignais remained solid in defense but ended up breaking down in the 79th minute. After a simulated scrum, Maxime Médard plays in the closed side and finds Arthur Bonneval. The winger comes to register the 5th try of the meeting and allows Toulouse to win the offensive bonus.
