A late try by Timoci Matanavou earned Toulouse a narrow 23-22 victory over visitors Castres as the new French Top 14 season got under way.

The Fiji winger crossed the line after a surge down the left, with a video replay required to confirm the score.

Defending champions Toulouse had been trailing by five points following Rory Kockott’s penalty.

The South African scrum-half scored all of Castres’ points, which included a 53rd-minute try.

Matanavou’s score was the hosts’ only try, with Lionel Beauxis kicking five penalties and Luke McAlister adding a sixth just before the hour mark.
