17 points: Rory Kockott

Five penalties and a conversion from Rory Kockott helped Castres to a 25-20 victory over Toulon at the Stade Pierre-Antoine on Friday.

Castres had the better of the first half and raced into a significant 22-9 lead after 44 minutes thank to Kockott's prolific boot and a try from winger Romain Martial.

Toulon gradually responded throughout the second half thanks to the boot of former England fly-half Jonny Wilkinson, who scored four penalties and a drop goal in total.

Fly-half Remi Tales landed a crucial drop goal to ensure a ten-point margin for the home side, with Matt Giteau's try in the 66th minute bringing Toulon into touching distance but ultimately proving to be not enough.

The win secures Castres position in fourth place in the Top 14, whilst Toulon must wait to see if Clermont can make inroads into their seven-point gap at the top of the table this weekend.
