Toulouse defeats Bath 31-19 in the Investec Champions Cup, denying the visitors a home knockout tie.

Both sides scored three first-half tries, with Toulouse’s coming through Emmanuel Meafou, Thomas Ramos and a penalty try.

Bath, who were 12-0 down at one point, responded through Beno Obano, Thomas du Toit and Ollie Lawrence.

Juan Cruz Mallia and Ramos’ second try denied the Premiership side the crucial losing bonus point.

Bath, who had already qualified for the knockouts, only required one point for a home last-16 tie, which Harlequins take advantage of thanks to their big win over Ulster on Saturday.

The result secures Toulouse’s spot as number-one seed heading into the knockout stages, which ensures home advantage until the final.

Toulouse embrace tournament favourites tag

Both sides picked up maximum points from their first three games and remained the only two teams who could finish on a perfect 20 points.

Antoine Dupont’s Toulouse have been touted as the early favourites for the competition after scoring 147 points in those games.
