Glasgow trounce Toulouse
17 Jan 2009
Glasgow scored an unlikely upset when they downed French giants Toulouse 33-26 on Saturday.
Dan Parks excelled for the Scottish side as the visitors staved off a strong Toulouse fightback. Glasgow scored three tries in all, and only some accurate kicking by Toulouse’s Gaffie du Toit ensured the hosts finished with a valuable bonus point.
Perpignan fared better beating the Ospreys 17-15, but the bonus point garnered by the Welsh outfit sees them still in the hunt to top their European Cup pool.
Meanwhile, Leicester smashed Benetton Treviso 52-0 with Kiwis Aaron Mauger and Scott Hamilton scoring a brace apiece. Harlequins came short in their European Cup game at Ravehill with Ulster taking the spoils at 21-10.
Wasps edged Leinster 19-12 but CJ van der Linde’s team picked up the consolatory bonus point to stay top of their pool.
