Toulon were rampant as they put nine tries past visiting Grenoble at the Stade Mayol on Sunday, winning 61-28 in the Top 14.

Toulon were rampant as they put nine tries past visiting Grenoble at the Stade Mayol on Sunday, winning 61-28 in the Top 14.

Bernard Laporte actually credited Grenoble’s shock win at the Mayol last season for being the catalyst behind their eventual success in the Top 14 and Europe.

Converting the pain of that loss into a positive outcome however wouldn’t have entirely ridden Toulon’s memory of that loss, with revenge on their mind.

Grenoble handed them a gift to open the scoring. Charl McLeod’s hashed box kick was easily blocked by Alexandre Menini before he flopped on the ball to score.
