Oyonnax now hold the record in the PRO D2 for the fastest try in the competition's history!
They set the new record on Thursday evening in their clash with Angouleme. Former French International Lionel Beauxis hung his kick off high and allowing centre Adrian Sanday to reclaim the ball.
The centre had a lovely 1-2 with former Les Bleus outside back Benjamin Fall before Sanday went over in the corner just nine seconds into the game.
The fast start gave Oyonnax an early boost but Angouleme did hit back with a try of their own in the 11 minute with the scores then level at 8 points apiece.
The half would end with Oyonnax in the lead 21-11. Loic Credoz scored in the 63rd minute of the game to extend Oyonnax's lead to 28-11 before Angouleme finished strongly with two late tries as the game ended 28-25 to Oyonnax.
Oyonnax now hold the record for the quickest try in the TOP14 as well as the PROD2 after they dotted down in the 11th second of their clash with Castres during the 2013/14 season.
