Castres shocks Toulon

CASTRES, France - French Top 14 rugby leaders Toulon slumped to a 25-20 defeat at a freezing Castres on yesterday, their sole consolation being 15 points from Jonny Wilkinson's boot salvaging a defensive bonus point.

Missing international stars such as Jocelino Suta, Mathieu Bastareaud and Frederic Michalak, who remain on Six Nations duty, Toulon also suffered for their indiscipline with prop Andrew Sheridan and hooker Sebastien Bruno both yellow-carded in the first half.

"Castres made the most of their opportunities and Rory Kockott (17 points) was great with the kicking," Coach Azam said.

Castres were 19-9 ahead by the interval thanks to a 14th-minute try from winger Romain Martial and 14 points kicked by South African scrum-half Kockott.

Australian centre Matt Giteau grabbed a 68th-minute try for Toulon but, by that stage, Castres were already out of sight.
