RugbyU: Toulon bounce back to thrash Montpellier

Top 14 leaders Toulon responded brilliantly to their humiliating 41-0 defeat by Bordeaux-Begles last weekend by thrashing high-flying Montpellier 51-6 on Saturday. Toulon scored five tries, with Jonny Wilkinson contributing 26 points, to take an 11-point lead over Toulouse, who lost to Perpignan on Friday in what was their manager Guy Noves's 1,000th match with the club. Clermont also trail by 11 points but they can reduce it later when they host bottom side Mont-de-Marsan.

RugbyU: Perpignan gatecrash Noves' 1,000th Toulouse game

South African centre Gavin Hume scored the only try as Perpignan defeated Toulouse 19-18 on Friday to shatter Guy Noves' dream of celebrating his 1,000th match with the French champions with victory. Hume scored with 10 minutes left with Welsh fly-half James Hook kicking the crucial extras as Perpignan came back from 18-12 down to condemn Toulouse to a first loss at their Stade Ernest-Wallon home in almost three years.
