Perpignan have booked their place in the Amlin Challenge Cup semi-finals after beating French rivals Toulouse 30-19 at Stade Aimé Giral on Friday.

USAP will face either Bath or Stade Français in the last four while Leinster will host Biarritz.

Home tries were scored by Romain Taofifenua, Farid Sid and Sebastien Vahaamahina while Toulouse responded through Edwin Maka.

Toulouse, who had named a largely second-string side, looked to be heading for a half-time lead before Sid crossed in the 37th minute.

And upon the resumption it was all Perpignan as Vahaamahina's try and points from James Hook and Romain Terrain saw them seal their passage into the last four of the competition.
