Joris Segonds and his address
The Parisian opener missed 4 out of 8 attempts and left a good bunch of points on the way, where Stade Français could have avoided a scare at the end of the match when Toulouse was only 6 points behind.
Little successful he also missed a drop in the second half.
Whistles even came to accompany him on his last failed attempt.

Mistakes of all kinds
Indiscipline, poor handling... The meeting between Stade Français and Stade Toulousain was rather exciting in the first period, much less in the second.
Toulouse showed a strong indiscipline during certain moments of the game, without being sanctioned by the boot of Segonds.
The Parisians themselves, have chained the mistakes of hands and the inaccuracies, in particular on the choices of play. As when Dakuwaqa who had a boulevard to speak about his speed and his power chose the game on foot, giving possession to the opponent .
In short, a lot of clumsiness, which however cost Toulouse more at the end of the match.
