Toulouse overcome Connacht in Pool Three of the Heineken Cup.

Toulouse have beaten Connacht 37-9 in their Pool Three match.

Connacht moved 3-0 ahead in the opening minutes with a kick from Dan Parks, but a Lionel Beauxis kick and Maxime Medard's try saw Toulouse move ahead.

Parks was on the mark again with a drop goal, but Toulouse's quality showed when Medard and Christopher Tolofua added further tries before the break.

The second half started without either side adding to the scoreline, but Connacht's task got even harder with 54 minutes gone when Louis Picamoles went over for his first try of the match and a 27-9 lead.

Beauxis brought up 30 and then Gael Fickou added a late try to round off a good performance.
