Toulouse s winger Vincent Clerc vies with Stade Francais

Try for Toulouse: Vincent Clerc

Toulouse's returning French internationals helped the defending Top 14 champions to a 43-16 victory over traditional rivals Stade Franšais at Stade Ernest Wallon on Sunday.

Yoann Huget touched down twice while his fellow Six Nations Bleus Vincent Clerc, Thierry Dusautoir and Maxime Medard also all scored as Toulouse claimed a precious bonus point in their mission to secure a home play-off berth.

Georgian hooker Jaba Bregvadze added a sixth try for good measure to see Toulouse moved clear in the final quarter of what had been a close game.

Stade Franšais had in fact been16-15 ahead at the 53-minute mark but a rampaging last 25 minutes from the hosts left the Parisians empty handed.

Toulouse led 10-9 at the break thanks to Huget's first try while Jerome Porical kept the visitors in touch with his boot.

The result nevertheless leaves Toulouse eight points behind leaders Toulon and six short of second-placed Clermont.
