Toulon, Brive win
Paris: Toulon bounced back from last week’s shock loss at Bayonne as they defeated Pau while Brive saw off Stade Français on home soil. 17 points from the boot of Leigh Halfpenny proved key as Toulon conceded two tries to the one scored by number eight Charles Ollivon.
In the other fixtures, La Rochelle won at Grenoble, Racing 92 proved too strong for Lyon while Bayonne and Castres played out a draw, with Toulouse getting the better of Bordeaux-Bègles in the late Top 14 game.
