Top 14: Stade Toulousain beats Racing 34-16 but worries about Yoann Huget

the essential 22nd day of the championship. The “Red and Black” won against the residents of the Ile-de-France and scored four goals. But fear the end of a career for your injured winger.

Stade Toulousain is back at sea and leads the top 14. On Saturday, April 24th, on the 22nd day of the championship, the “Red-Black” won 34-16 against Racing 92 at the Ernest Wallon Stadium.

A meeting that was marked by the serious injury of Yoann Huget in the first phase, who could have played the last game of his career.

Huget, precisely the author of the first of the four Toulouse essays in the first period. After a long pass from Mauvaka, the winger used the excess at the end of the line to flatten (27 ‘).

11 minutes later (38 ‘) prevented a penalty attempt against Toulouse after Kurtley Beale of Ile-de-France Toulouse’s Zack Holmes had prevented the goal.

Thanks to Romain Ntamack’s shoe, the stadium leads 20: 9 during the break and also develops in numerical superiority: the racing men Beale (38 ‘) and Palu (40’) were temporarily excluded from the yellow card.

The Toulousans took advantage of this advantage and attacked the second act at a rapid pace: Pierre Fouyssac flattened in the gate of the Ile-de-France from the 42nd, after he had flirted with the sideline, and rewarded Medard and Lebel with a great impulse left side.

Racing players react to the hour mark with an attempt by Boris Palu. Not enough to return. It is even the Haut-Garonnais who take home the point and score a fourth attempt by Antoine Dupont (68 ‘) with a good serve from Marchand.

Final result: 34-16 for Toulouse, improved win. Now go to the semi-finals of the European Cup on Saturday 1st May against Bordeaux-Bègles.
