Montpellier reassures itself with the way

The Héraultais remained on four consecutive defeats in the league, so a last at the Stade Français.

Stuck in 10th place in the standings, Philippe Saint-André's men may have played a final this Saturday against Clermont.

And despite a difficult start to the match, the MHR then rolled out to win very largely with the offensive bonus (34-9).

With this success, Montpellier goes back to 8th place, five points behind 6th, UBB.

The Cistes will have to continue in two weeks in Perpignan.

The joy of Reinach and Carbonel.


Mercer and Serfontein back in form

Montpellier could count on the returns of the best player in the Top 14 last season, Zach Mercer, and center three-quarter Jan Serfontein.

Very important feedback.

Zach Mercer continued to be in the lead this Saturday and is even behind the penultimate Montpellier test scored by Reinach.

Starting a few meters from his in-goal, the Englishman feigned, accelerated, escaped two players and handed over to his scrum half.

Serfontein was important in defense and stood out on Thomas Darmon's try.

Serfontein made his power speak on Saturday.



Clermont will surely not be in the six

This game was crucial.

For both teams.

But Clermont, with this defeat, should not be in the six at the end of the season.

Christophe Urios' men take 10th place in the UBB standings nine points and six days from the end.

It will take a feat for ASM to reach the final stages.

Cancoriet sees yellow then red

The match will have been marked by a shower of cards.

First two on the side of the MHR by Van Rensburg and Chalureau in quick succession.

Cancoriet, at the end of the first period will also receive a yellow card for illegal entry into a maul.

But the third row will be guilty of a bad tackle at Dakuwaqa's head on the way back from the locker room.

Cancoriet receives a yellow card which Montpellier will use to score points.

Before the end of the match, Sébastien Bézy will be sanctioned for a voluntary forward.
