A last-minute penalty from Brock James extended Clermont’s unbeaten home run to 50 matches in a thrilling 24-21 win over Top 14 leaders Toulon.
Jonny Wilkinson - who scored all Toulon’s points - thought he had earned a draw with his 79th-minute drop goal, but Australian fly-half James capitalised on an infringement by compatriot Matt Giteau to seal the win.
Racing Metro slumped to a surprise 16-17 home defeat to basement boys Mont de Marsan.
England international Olly Barkley, playing fly-half, scored and converted his first Racing try before kicking three penalties, but Simon Lucu’s try and an Antoine Vignau-Tuquet drop goal saw the visitors fight back to victory.
Other results saw Castres win 16-13 at Bordeaux, while Grenoble beat Bayonne 9-6.
