Ireland out-half Jonathan Sexton has inspired Racing Métro to a 21-16 victory over Toulouse at Stade Ernest Wallon in the Top 14 play-offs to secure a place in the semi-finals.

Sexton kicked seven penalties for the Parisian side, while Toulouse responded with a try from Hosea Gear, allied to kicked points from Jean-Marc Doussain. However, that proved to be insufficient as Racing claimed the victory.

Sexton and Co advance to face Toulon in the semi-finals on 16 May.
