3              for everyone at the half in the Felix Mayol and though Toulon went ahead briefly, 6-3 in the 42nd, on Adrienne Belleau’s second penalty stroke, the remaining numbers counted by a brace of trys from visitors, their completions by the Lyon 10, J-M Doussain, and penalty from Doussain for the 20-3 record;

17           in the first 15 for Stade Français and 18 for 22 years old 10, Jori Segonds, on 4-and-4 from the floor as home team held off Bayonne for victory at Jean-Bouin, 33-27;
