Toulouse Olympique 56-16 Rochdale Hornets


Toulouse Olympique’s unbeaten streak on home turf continued as they defeated an injury-stricken Rochdale Hornets 56-16 at Stade Ernest Argeles. Bastien Ader notched three of his side’s ten tries while Mark Kheirallah kicked eight conversions to go alongside his lone four pointer.

It took the hosts two minutes to break the deadlock as Constantine Mika touched down. Kheirallah converted. Ader registered his first try of the contest on 11 minutes but Olympique weren’t having it all their own way, which was evident as Rob Massam cut the deficit soon after for the Hornets. Kheirallah added the conversion while Rochdale debutant Tyler Whittaker’s effort was off target. Four scores¬†in the space of ten minutes saw the French club extend their lead to 30 points by half-time. The purple patch started with Stan Robin crossing before Ader completed his hat-trick with a quick double-salvo. Kheirallah grabbed his side’s seventh try of proceedings a minute before the break. The goal-kicker converted three of the four tries.

Toulouse came out of the blocks fast in the second period and got a try for their efforts courtesy of prop forward Clement Boyer. Kheirallah added the extras, and he did the same following Anthony Marion’s 48th minute try. In the final quarter, with Toulouse looking for a score to get them to the 50 point mark, Rochdale hit back on two consecutive occasions. Declan Kay and Miles Greenwood were the try-scorers for the Hornets, who were always going to be up against it due to their injury situation. Whittaker converted both tries. Paul Marcon and Rhys Curran added gloss to the final scoreline for the hosts with a try apiece.
