Man of the match: Graeme Horne - his skill and strength and experience and nous and drive in the engine room was clear.

Referee: James Child (Wakefield) – didn’t often check for offsides, seemed to allow slow rucks. Some 50-50 calls did not go down well with the home support. The penalty count was certainly lopsided. Video clips suggest Toulouse's winning try should have been ruled out for a knock-on.

Penalty count: 4-9

Half-time: 12-12

Weather: very wet and rainy with patches of surface water after the prolonged downpours. Rain abated in the second half.

Attendance: TBC

Moment of the match: Liam Harris’ try, on the back of a training ground move involving Will Jubb, Graeme Horne and the excellent Matty Marsh, was a cracker.

Gaffe of the match: Three times York took the lead and three times they erred on the restart with Toulouse immediately hitting back. (Although the third of these - Joe Porter's supposed knock-on - looked harsh.)

Gamebreaker: The controversial yellow card for Matty Marsh with three minutes to go, followed by the penalty goal, put Toulouse one man and six points up and the late drop goal ended all faint home hope of a stunning finale.

Match rating: another very good-quality contest between these two top-end Championship teams, which Toulouse again just shaded - largely thanks to a controversial late try. The fact York were so disappointed to lose to a side of Olympique's current stature shows how far the Knights have come.
