Heineken Champions Cup – Toulouse advance to Cup final


Toulouse have booked their place in the Champions Cup after beating Bordeaux-Begles on Saturday 21-9.

It was the brilliance of Antione Dupont again that got them over the line against a never-say-die Bordeaux. With 8 minutes to go the French nine finished off his side second try to make sure they book their place in the final.

Bordeaux must get a lot of credit for the way they never gave up and pushed Toulouse all the way to the end. Jalibert was again one of the standout players for Bordeaux.

It was just the last 10 minutes that Toulouse showed why they are so highly rated and as expected just had enough to get the win.

Bordeaux were first to get points on the board with a penalty from Jalibert. Toulouse answered back three minutes later with a try from Matthis Lebel.
