Edinburgh's Heineken Cup hopes were left hanging by a thread after a gutsy loss to champions Toulouse in France.

The hosts went ahead after a couple of minutes, a pick-up by Isitolo Maka teeing up his brother Finau to score.

And they surged clear when Romain Millo-Chluski and replacement Florian Fritz touched down in quick succession.

The Gunners answered in fine style when scrum-half Mike Blair freed up Chris Paterson for a brilliant score, but the bold visitors came no closer to parity.

Torrential rain made conditions even tougher as the match wore on and it was a handling error which allowed Toulouse to open up a 15-point gap after 55 minutes.

Neither Hugo Southwell nor Paterson was able to hold an up and under before Jean-Frederic Dubois sprinted over unchallenged.


Toulouse: Poitrenaud, Clerc, Thomas, Jauzion, Heymans, Dubois, Elissalde, Poux, Bru, Hassanein, Millochlusky, Brennan, Bouihlou, F. Maka, I. Maka. Replacements: Lacombe, Fiorini, Ledevedec, Nyanga, Michalak, Fritz, Montauriol.

Edinburgh: Southwell, Paterson, Di Rollo, Jorgensen, Webster, Godman, Blair, Hewett, Hall, Smith, Strokosch, Murray, Mustchin, Hogg, Taylor. Replacements: Kelly, Jacobsen, Cross, MacDonald, Lawson, Dey, Leonelli Morey.

Referee: Nigel Owens (WRFU)
