Making it worse, the French had two players - Andrea Damiani and Mansour Lakehal - send off and this could affect the team which is looking tired and undermanned.
However, they still hold a one-point advantage in the table and their next two opponents - a much weakened Young Lions and a youthful Albirex Niigata (S) - are certainly much 'easier' compared to the former champions.
Erwan Gunawan was also send off for the Warriors.
Goals from Ivan Jerkovic, Federico Martinez and John Wilkinson secured the Warriors victory.
