Rochdale Hornets 14-52 Toulouse Olympique


Toulouse Olympique hammered Rochdale Hornets 52-14 at the Crown Oil Arena to keep up their brilliant start to the season. Tony Maurel was the man of the match with a four-try performance for Sylvain Houles’ men. The French side had the game wrapped up by half-time as they led 36-0. Maurel was the first to cross the whitewash before Rochdale forward Jono Smith was sin-binned for interference. In the following set, Anthony Marion touched down prior to Paul Marcon also registering a four pointer. Even when Smith returned to the fray, Toulouse ended the half with a further four tries to their name. Maurel, Kaluasa Leha, and a brace from Bastien Ader all but sealed victory.

Gavin Marguerite and Ben Moores exchanged scores for the visitors and hosts respectively before Maurel bagged a second half double to take his tally to four for the game. Gary Middlehurst and Rob Massam finished the match with a try apiece as the Hornets bagged a couple of consolations.
