Toulon managed to overcome a spirited Bath side in their Champions Cup pool 5 clash today, despite a Chris Ashton howler that gifted the English team a try.
Both sides traded tries in the first half before Ashton made an absolute hames of a clearance kick, gifting a try to former England teammate Jonathan Joseph.
Bath looked set to claim a famous win as a result, taking a 20-14 lead, only for a moment of absolute brilliance from Anthony Belleau clinched a 24-20 win for the French giants at the Stade Felix Mayol.
In fairness to Ashton he took is well in his post-match interview, saying all he could do was laugh at his mistake, taking complete blame.
