Toulouse earn record 11th consecutive win

Toulouse won 25-9 at Dax on Friday to earn a French Top 14 championship record of 11 consecutive victories, and 15 in all counting European Cup matches.

France scrum-half Jean-Baptiste Elissalde returned to action for Toulouse after a month on the sidelines, scoring 11 points with the boot.

Frederic Michalak and Florian Fritz got the other kicking points while Maleli Kunavore scored the visitors’ only try. Maxime Petitjean kicked all of Dax’s points.

The league leaders were rarely in trouble and easily controlled the match against a courageous Dax side who could be forgiven a lack of confidence following their 56-15 defeat at the hands of Stade Francais last Saturday.

Toulouse’s victory comes a week before hosting Glasgow in the European Cup as they go for a fifth consecutive victory in the penultimate round of group matches.
