Toulouse too strong for Dragons

European champions Toulouse stretched their unbeaten record to stay top of Heineken Cup Pool Six despite an unconvincing display in their 17-3 success against Newport Gwent Dragons.

Captain Thierry Dusautoir scored in each half, either side of Vincent Clerc's 32nd try of the competition, although the Frenchmen failed to collect a bonus against the pool's bottom side.

Jason Tovey scored the only points for the Dragons with a penalty just before half-time, but the Welsh club came away from Stade Ernest-Wallon having earned credit for their defensive display.

Toulouse's Frederic Michalak was shown a yellow card late on, just moments after returning from a long-term injury.
