Racing Metro slump to defeat against Begles

Lucas Amorosino scored a consolation try in the second half for the unfortunate visitors, who remained second from bottom in the table.

Toulon's huge win lifts them top ahead of Clermont, who fell to a surprising defeat away at mid-table Bordeaux-Begles.

Clermont looked in control as they led 13-6 following Elvis Vermeulen's try shortly before half-time.

But Bordeaux trimmed the deficit via a penalty just before the break, and then Metuisela Talebula scored two second-half tries as the hosts dominated the second period - the second of those two scores coming in the penultimate minute to deny Clermont even the dignity of a losing bonus point.

Montpellier had beaten Stade Francais 19-10 on Friday night, and Castres missed a chance to leapfrog both as they lost 25-15 at Racing Metro.

That result puts Racing Metro sixth, three points behind fifth-placed Castres.

Brive cruised to a 31-6 win over Grenoble, while in the day's other mid-table clash Toulouse face Perpignan later on Saturday night.

Bottom club Biarritz play Bayonne on Sunday.
