Toulouse continued their unbeaten run with a 22-17 victory over Bordeaux-Bègles which lifts them to the summit of the Top 14 table. Defending champions Racing, who failed to score a try in their opening 15-9 defeat by Raphael Ibanez's Bordeaux-Begles, got back on track under the watchful eye of club president Mourad Boudjellal at their home ground in Colombes, outside Paris, with a 29-16 win.
