    FT: Toulon 12-9 Bath

    George Ford

    Reigning champions Toulon scored a late penalty to earn a vital win against Bath in the European Champions Cup.

    The two teams went into the game level on points in Pool Five - both trailing leaders Wasps by six.

    George Ford kicked Bath ahead on three occasions at the Stade Felix Mayol but Toulon's Eric Escande matched him every time from the tee.

    And despite a strong second half from Bath, Freddie Michalak landed the winning penalty after 75 minutes.

    Wasps 32-22 Worcester

    Wasps celebrate

    Two tries in the final two minutes secured a dramatic victory for Wasps over Premiership strugglers Worcester.

    Warriors, promoted back to the top flight in May, led 13-6 at half-time thanks to Cooper Vuna's try and Andy Symons' accuracy from the tee.

    Guy Thompson crossed for Wasps to close the gap, but three more penalties from Symons put Worcester 22-20 in front.

    But Frank Halai put Wasps ahead and Sailosi Tagicakibau crossed to steal a bonus point and deny Warriors anything.

    FT: London Irish 20-15 Newcastle

    Topsy Ojo

    London Irish survived a Newcastle fightback to climb above the Falcons and send the visitors back to the bottom of the Premiership table.

    Two Chris Noakes penalties put the Exiles 6-0 ahead at the break.

    Alex Lewington's try straight from kick-off at the start of the second half and Topsy Ojo's score three minutes later sent Irish well clear.

    Falcons hit back through Andy Goode's penalty and tries from Nili Latu and Marcus Watson, but the Exiles held on.

  6. Here's what you might've missed...

    Today has been an absolute humdinger, I'm sure you'll agree.

    One spectacular almost-comeback, one spectacular completed comeback and one spectacular effort from an English side in Europe that ultimately came up short.

    Here's a look back at what you might've missed...

    FT: Toulon 12-9 Bath

  10. Toulon 12-9 Bath

    That result means Toulon are now within two points of Wasps at the top of Pool 5 with two games to play. Wasps host the European champions on Saturday. Bath have it all to do and are five points behind Wasps. 

  11. Full-time

    Toulon 12-9 Bath

    And that is full-time at the Stade Mayol - heartbreak for Bath but what a brave performance from Mike Ford's side. 

  12. Toulon 12-9 Bath

    The scrum breaks up so it's going to be reset. Time is now up, the next stoppage will be full-time. 

  13. Toulon 12-9 Bath

    Toulon could run down the clock but instead they decide to run the ball and it's lost forward. Bath have a late scrum with a minute to go but they're well inside their own half. There are bodies everywhere, it's been a brutal contest. 

  14. Toulon 12-9 Bath

    The line-out is lost by Bath and Toulon clear to halfway. What a waste from Mike Ford's side. 

  15. Toulon 12-9 Bath

    Can Bath get back into this game? They have a line-out inside Toulon's 22m with two and half minutes left. 

  16. Penalty (Michalak)

    Toulon 12-9 Bath

    It's a silly penalty to concede but that matters little and Frederic Michalak puts Toulon ahead for the first time in the contest. Just over three minutes left. 

  17. Toulon 9-9 Bath

    Line-out

    Toulon win the line-out, set up the driving maul and bulldoze themselves forward. Eventually they win a penalty...

    Toulon 9-9 Bath

  19. Toulon 9-9 Bath

    It's a solid scrum from Toulon, who are up to the halfway line and eventually win a penalty. Quade Cooper kicks his side deep into Bath territory. Big line-out coming up.

  20. Toulon 9-9 Bath

    Oh my word! Chris Cook is fingertips away from an interception and a clear run to the try line. So close for the Bath scrum-half. It's a knock on and a scrum.
