Argentine fly half Benjamín Urdapilleta continued his impressive form this season as he saw his club, Oyonnax, fight to the finish to draw with French powerhouses Toulouse.  Urdapilleta scored fourteen points for Oyonnax in landing four penalties and a conversion off his left boot. He also set up the first try of the match as he kicked through off his right boot for fullback Florian Denos to chase and touch down two minutes before the interval. 

In securing two competition points Oyonnax is tied with Bayonne and Perpignan on 50 points. One of the three will be joining Biarritz in being relegated to the Pro d2. Oyonnax will face Brive in the final round, an easier assignment than the others who will be taking on Castres and Clermont Auvergne. 

Oyonnax is in the Top 14 this season after having won promotion from the Pro d2. It is now on the verge of securing its place in the elite division of French rugby next season and with it having signed some notable players it is on track to build towards performing better in the future. Urdapilleta will remain at the club next season and, on form, is a strong contender to be named by Daniel Hourcade in Argentina´s squad to face Ireland and Scotland in June.
