Wallabies winger Drew Mitchell scored a brace of tries as Toulon romped to a 38-8 win over Grenoble.

Mitchell scored in the 50th and 70th minutes in the win, continuing his recent rich vein of form in the Top 14.

The 31-year-old starred along with centre Ma'a Nonu in the game, with the two Test foes teaming up to make a formidable pairing.

Capped Wallabies forward Peter Kimlin played a full match, starting at blindside flanker for Grenoble.


Aussies were getting on the scorecard in England too, with Peter Betham scoring a sensational try for Leicester in a loss to George Smith's Wasps.

Tigers' outside centre Betham crossed in the 23rd minute, intercepting an off-target pass from Wasps winger Christian Wade to streak away for the five-pointer.

Smith played 65 minutes for the Wasps in the match, making 10 tackles in the game as Wasps clinched a 36-24 win, their eighth from the last nine matches.

Cooper Vuna played on the wing for Worcester over night, as the Warriors took just their fourth win of the season, over Gloucester.

Vuna played the full match but it was just the beginning of his evening, with the ex-Wallabies winger kicking on to a DJ gig at a local club.
