Toulouse hooker Christophe Tolofua admits that his team lost the physical battle against La Rochelle on Sunday.

The Toulouse scrum lost four of their six scrums and conceded double the number of penalties as their hosts, with scrum-half Julien Audy kicking six three-pointers.

The 37-25 success was La Rochelle's first since winning promotion to the Top 14.

Tolofua conceded that the result made sense, with his side struggling to put together any consistency in their performance.

“It's a logical result. We didn't perform, we were too erratic,” Tolofua told AFP.

“We lost four balls on our own scrum. All week we worked, expecting aggressive waves in defense and attack.

“We expected a big fight and that happened somewhat.”
