Highlights: Castres Olympique scored a magnificent team try against Welsh side Scarlets, bringing the ball to life with four passes. The Tarnais once again showed their attacking qualities with a sublime try, at the end of a four-pass action after contact, in the middle of an overwhelmed Welsh defence. For their debut in the Challenge Cup, the second European Rugby Cup (after the Campions Cup), the OC won the attacking bonus with five tries scored. Despite a high turnover, the third in the Top 14 (six wins in nine games) is not weakening on the European scene.

Who said that Castres Olympique were a rough team incapable of playing an attractive game? On Saturday afternoon, in a rugby Challenge Cup match against Welsh side Scarlets, the Tarnais once again showed their attacking qualities with a sublime try, at the end of a four-pass action after contact, in the middle of an overwhelmed Welsh defence.

It all started with a first pass from Vilimoni Botitu in the back to Abraham Papali'i, 30 metres from the in-goal. The back row bursts close to the touchline. Tackled, the number 8 then delivered a blind pass, chistera with his left hand, to the same Vilimoni Botitu. Which immediately gives... a pass over his head to Leone Nakarawa, who was launched. A stint - and a new offload - later with Gauthier Doubrère, and the young fly-half Louis Le Brun raced headlong into the corner.

This sublime try brought the Stade Pierre-Fabre to its feet and consolidated the victory against Llanelli (34-16 final score). For their debut in the Challenge Cup, the second European Rugby Cup (after the Campions Cup), the OC won the attacking bonus with five tries scored. Despite a high turnover, the third in the Top 14 (six wins in nine games) is not weakening on the European scene.
