Trinh-Duc late penalty gives Toulon the points

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - RUGBY -

FRAN­COIS Trinh-Duc struck a late penalty as Toulon won 30-29 at Tre­viso.

The sides scored two tries each, Juan Ig­na­cio Brex and Edoardo Gori go­ing in for Tre­viso, while Semi Radrada and Jo­sua Tuiosva scored for the vis­i­tors.

Trinh-Duc’s fail­ure to con­vert both, as Ian McKin­ley suc­cess­fully did for Tre­viso, looked to be costly.

The two men traded five penal­ties apiece un­til Trinh-Duc won it with his sixth at­tempt.

Tre­viso sit bot­tom of Pool Five as a re­sult, with Toulon level top with Bath.
