- Pool 3: Northampton 22-19 Toulon, Bayonne 11-12 Glasgow
- Challenge Cup: Scarlets suffer shock loss to Black Lion
Northampton defied a succession of injuries and a determined Toulon to register a 22-19 Champions Cup victory at Franklin’s Gardens.
Saints led for most of the match until their former second row David Ribbans, who departed the east Midlands at the end of last season, went over in the 66th minute to give the Top 14’s second-placed side the lead.
