Title holders Harlequins slipped out of the Amlin Challenge Cup last weekend as Toulon beat them 37-8 at the Stade Felix Mayol. The signs were ominous for the visitors from the moment they stepped out of the changeroom.
Toulon are through to the semi finals following a convincing display in front of their always vocal home crowd. Jonny Wilkinson grabbed 17 points, despite being replaced early in the second half.
They scored tries through Sebastien Tillous Borde, Benjamin Lapeyre, and another Englishman, Steffon Armitage. You can view highlights of the game here (or click the related post).
Harlequins were missing star players Nick Evans and Chris Robshaw, so in the latters absence, big lock George Robson stepped up and captained the side.
Things didn't start out too well for him though, as you'll see in the following clip. The reaction of the players around him is great, and fair play to Robson himself, who had a little grin about it.
