Glasgow's hopes of European progress were dashed by a clinical Toulouse side who ran in four first-half tries.

Despite a spirited performance, Glasgow were blown away as Trevor Brennan, Gregory Lamboley, Frederic Michalak and Isitolo Maka all crossed the line.

Glasgow scored tries at the end of either half through Sean Lamont and Donnie MacFadyen, while Dan Parks kicked seven points.

But Yan Jauzion and Cedric Heymans tries confirmed Toulouse's superiority.

Toulouse opened the scoring with their first attack. Andy Craig was penalised for failing to release the ball quickly enough in contact, giving Jean-Baptiste Elissalde a straight-forward penalty chance from 40 metres, which he accepted with ease.

Glasgow responded in positive fashion, but Lamont and Kenny Logan both failed to make the most of decent try-scoring opportunities.

Toulouse began to hit form in the 19th minute when former Ireland forward Brennan was driven over following two penalty line-outs.

Then five minutes later, Glasgow made a hash of a quickly tapped penalty on the home 22-line.

The ball was hoofed downfield, where Kerr fumbled and from the scrummage, lock Lamboley powered across.

Ellisalde slotted both conversions and even worse was to come as Toulouse claimed two more scores in quick succession to effectively end the contest and seal a bonus point into the bargain.

Michalak earned the third try after a Heymans break - then 20-stone-plus breakaway Maka brushed aside three markers with contempt to set up Elissalde's fourth conversion.

Glasgow refused to buckle completely and they produced a fine consolation touchdown on the stroke of the interval when Lamont slid over following a dash by Craig - Parks added the goal.

Parks then slotted a penalty to give his team a fresh glimmer of hope, but Toulouse burst back to grab another try through Jauzion in the wake of another interception, this time by fellow sub Emile N'Tamack before Heymans added a sixth Toulouse try.

Glasgow had the last word with a stoppage-time try by Macfadyen, converted by Parks.
