Highlights: Stade Toulousain beat Cardiff 52-7 in the Rugby Heineken Champions Cup. Toulon were heading for the same outcome against Exeter, but spoiled everything and eventually lost (18-19), with an English try converted after the siren. RCT were clearly in the lead after a controlled first half, punctuated by two tries from Beka Gigashvili (20') and Ben White (24'). But the Var faded after Baptiste Serin was injured with a shoulder injury.


Stade Toulousain took advantage of the Heineken Champions Cup to get back on track after a mixed start to the season in the Top 14, by inflicting a 52-7 defeat


On alternating current in the Top 14, Stade Toulousain rebelled for its debut in the Rugby Heineken Champions Cup, against Cardiff (52-7). The Red & Blacks scored seven tries, including two for Scotland rookie Blair Kinghorn, who was at home in the pouring rain.

Matthis Lebel (5′), Richie Arnold (9′), Anthony Jelonch (38′), Arthur Retière (46′) and Alban Placines (70′) also took part in this Toulouse attacking festival. The hinge Antoine Dupont-Thomas Ramos raised his level to lead the champions of France to a promising success, to be confirmed against an opponent of better calibre.

Serin to a long absence

Toulon were heading for the same outcome against Exeter, but spoiled everything and eventually lost (18-19), with an English try converted after the siren. It was a cruel end for RCT, who were clearly in the lead after a controlled first half (18-5), punctuated by two tries from Beka Gigashvili (20') and Ben White (24'). But the Var faded after Baptiste Serin was injured with a shoulder injury. The international scrum-half, who has been in great form since the start of the season, is expected to be out for a "certainly long" period of time, lamented his coach Pierre Mignoni.
