Toulouse score eight tries to romp to victory over Zebre

Toby Flood scored a try and kicked 14 points as Toulouse overpowered European Champions Cup opponents Zebre 54-15 and romped to their second win in Pool Two.

Italian side Zebre made a flying start when hooker Tommaso Apice's third-minute try was converted by Carlo Canna, but the Frenchmen hit back with six first-half tries to secure their bonus point and effectively wrap up the contest before the interval.

Number eight Gillian Galan, Samoan wing Paul Perez, full-back Yohan Huget, centre Arthur Bonneval, fly-half Flood and South African prop Gurthro Steenkamp all went over, while Zebre's only riposte in the first period came via a Canna penalty.

Zebre mustered their second try shortly after the break through Johannes Meyer, but Perez touched down for a second time and substitute Yann David also went over, with Flood booting his seventh conversion, as Toulouse cruised to victory.
