RugbyU: Toulouse face ultimate test of title mettle

Toulouse will be hoping their impregnable home form holds up when they host Top 14 leaders and title favourites Clermont at the Stade Ernest-Wallon on Saturday. The record four-time European champions and 19-time French champions have endured a frustrating season of contrasts. Although sitting fifth in the league, and only three points behind second-placed Stade Francais, they have failed to even manage a draw away from home. Seven defeats in seven away matches have at least been offset by eight wins in as many home encounters.

RugbyU: Leaders Clermont notch 70th straight home victory

Clermont racked up a 70th straight home win and extended their lead at the top of the French Top 14 with a 33-19 victory over Oyonnax on Sunday. Fijian born wing Noa Nakaitaci was the architect in the first half, scoring a brilliant 60-yard individual try before making a second break and teeing up Samoan No.8 Fritz Lee to go over. Nakataici's score was pure genius as he took the ball from the back of a breakdown, looped around the forwards and burst through a gap in Oyonnax's defensive line before chipping ahead and winning the foot-race to touch down.
