Racing 92's previous rugby matches at Stade de France
January 2014Racing Métro 92/Stade Toulousain
On January 25 2014 at Stade de France, Racing 92 drubbed Stade Toulousain by a score of 25-5. Despite many absentees (including seven players selected for the French XV), Guy Novès' men did seem to measure up on paper. But in fact, they never could stop the relentless onslaught of Racing 92, which could rely on a certain Mike Phillips and Jonathan Sexton in their prime.
Toulouse nevertheless managed to deprive the locals of an attacking bonus point right at the end of the game.
