Castres flanker Yannick Caballero has warned his team-mates to be ready for the threat posed by Montpellier's François Trinh-Duc.

The France fly-half, who is currently on 49 caps, is still only 27 and in flying form for his Top 14 side.

Trinh-Duc's late drop goal snatched victory for the French title contenders against Clermont Auvergne.

Castres are coming into the fixture on the back of a dominant 30-6 win over Bayonne at Stade Pierre Antoine, but know travelling on the road to Montpellier will be far from simple – particularly with Trinh-Duc currently thriving.

“François is really in form at the moment,” Cabellero told Rugbyrama.

“He really knows when to mix up the game either with his boot or from hand, plus he has a great sidestep.

“He's a player who can surprise you at any moment. Truly a complete player.

“We are going to have to be very wary.”
