Toulouse centre Yann David enjoyed a busy first-half against Wasps with an industrious display in the Stade Toulousain midfield.
Toulouse relied heavily on David to get over the gainline and when he did, he didn’t disappoint, fending off Wasps fullback Kurtley Beale with ease.
In a game devoid of many try scoring opportunities int he first-half, David awoke the crowd at the RICOH Arena after running a smart line just a few metres to the left of Toulouse’s ruck.
After breaking free of some flailing Wasps defenders, David stormed towards the Wasps posts and disregarded the would be challenge of the covering Beale.
The former Waratahs utility is much more revered for his attacking skills than his defensive capabilities, but he won’t want to see this one again after being tossed into the turf by David.
Wasps entered halftime with a slender 3-0 lead as Dai Young’s side look to keep pressure on Pool leaders Connacht after the Irish side trounced Zebre in Galway earlier on Saturday.
