Toulouse win Heineken Cup

9:13 am on 23 May 2010

Toulouse have survived a late Biarritz onslaught to win a tense all-French Heineken Cup rugby final 21-19 and secure a record fourth European title.

Trailing 21-12, beaten 2006 finalists Biarritz fashioned the only try of the game with seven minutes left when Karmichael Hunt dashed over but Toulouse, in their sixth final, held on to add to their titles in 1996, 2003 and 2005.

First-five David Skrela and centre Florian Fritz kicked all Toulouse's points, including three drop goals between them.
