Toulon achieved their biggest win of the season by upsetting Toulouse 14-6 in front of a packed Stade Velodrome last weekend in the Top 14.
The win means that Toulon have probably saved themselves from relegation, resulting in another year in the Top 14 for the club whos fans have such high expectations.
It was the French stars against the Toulon dream team, with the latter proving strong enough to hold off the champions.
Toulouse were held scoreless for the second week in a row, as Toulon scored the only try of the match through fullback Luke Rooney, with penalties keeping Toulon in front which led to the famous win.
A crazy thing happened in the first half though after a penalty was awarded to Toulon.
There was a bit of aggression on the ground, which the ref seemingly wanted to break up or pay his attention to immediately. So when scrum half Matt Henjak decided to take the quick tap, he intervened with a blatantly high tackle of his own.
Funnily enough, that actually sparked even more pushing and shoving, while Henjak, not the quietest of characters, was left speechless for perhaps the first time ever.
