Top 14 Round 26 Highlights: Clermont Auvergne v Toulouse

A really entertaining encounter at the Stade Marchel Michelin saw Clermont defeat Toulouse 36-26, a solid performance in Aurelian Rougerie's final game as a professional rugby player. It was the visitors who opened the scoring through Isefa Tekoria but Clermont responded in dogged fashion and a try from Flip van der Merwe levelled the scores and Clermont settled into the game from here. It really was a ding-dong battle up until halftime where scores from Semi Kunatani and Judicael Cancoriet tightened the game further. The hosts gained the upper hand with the final play of the first half seeing Wesley Fofana cross the white-wash - The scoreboard read Clermont 24 Toulouse 21 at the interval. Toulouse made the game interesting as Cyril Baille muscled his way over on the back of a rolling maul for Toulouse but three penalties for Clermont (two kicked by Para and one kicked by Laidlaw) ensured victory for the hosts. FT Clermont 36 Toulouse 26.
