Antoine Dupont (Toulouse scrum-half, after Saturday's 52-7 win over Cardiff in Round 1 of the Heineken Champions Cup): "It was a well-rounded performance. Beyond the score, there is content. We managed to hold the ball despite the conditions. We defended well as well. It was important to come together on the defensive side. This is an overall positive performance across all sectors. We were the first to be frustrated internally with the last performances. It wasn't finished in content. There was a lot of frustration and the desire to let loose while playing fair. I think today everyone had fun. And even though we're going to talk about the good tries, the defensive sequences are maybe even more important for me in terms of the state of mind. There's always a special atmosphere in Toulouse when we start the European Cup. We know the appetite that this club has for this competition. I felt good, just like the team. When everyone is there and you're playing scrum-half, it's easier, I had solutions every time I carried the ball."
