I bet they were trying to get under Itoje's skin and he reacted to it.

Bruce Craig is ringing EPCR to try and have this game ended immediately.

Comical stuff from Toulon to concede the TBP vs Edinburgh. Chucking it about 5m from their line and a stry offload gets intercepted.

Toulon are a bit of a rabble, but Edinburgh were properly good in their BP win - Cockers had a plan, it was the right plan and they stuck to it.

35-35 at the Ricoh. Must win games for both next week. Can't see either making a dent on the knockouts.

Zebo acting the gowl as he ran in Racing's last try. Embarrassed into apologising to the Ulster full-back by Owens. Ulster may have set a record for butchering chances in the second-half.

I thought that was unfair on Zebo, he was quite clearly ordering his post match cakes.

Well- subtle enough; funny too.

But he’s going to clean house there alright.. can’t see there being much whistling by the players and coaches though... except by the graveyard maybe.
