Toulouse Olympique 36-28 Swinton Lions

Toulouse Olympique winger Kuni Minga touches the ball down for a try.


Toulouse Olympique backed up their first away win against Halifax with a 36-28 victory over Swinton Lions at Stade Ernest Argeles.

Sylvain Houles’ men were 20-14 up at he break but had to come from behind after Ben White’s third minute try. Three consecutive tries from Mark Kheirallah, Bastien Canet and Kuni Minga gave Olympique an eight point advantage but Swinton responded well in the lead up to half-time. Chris Hankinson and Mike Butt both crossed the whitewash to level but were unable to keep Toulouse out as the French side crossed for a fourth time through Mourad Kriouache.

The hosts came out of the blocks all guns blazing after the restart with scores from Tony Maurel and Stan Robin extending the lead to 18 points. Jack Murphy and White gave Swinton a fighting chance heading into the final quarter with a try each cutting the deficit to eight points. Sebastien Planas and Connor Dwyer swapped scores for the hosts and visitors respectively as the game petered out with Toulouse keeping their 100% home form intact.
