Yoan Audrin: Scored Montpellier's try

Glasgow suffered a major blow to their hopes of topping Pool 3 after they only managed a 13-13 Heineken Cup draw against an under-strength Montpellier.

A scrappy first half an hour was punctuated only by a few missed penalties and drop goals from both sides as neither team settled well at the Stade Yves Du Manoir.

After 33 minutes though, the hosts briefly came to life as they won an attacking lineout before creating a sizeable overlap and putting the ball through the hands for Yoan Audrin to touch down in the corner.

The score remained 7-0 at the break and after Ruaridh Jackson and Iliad Perraux had exchanged penalties early on in the second half, Perraux stretched the Frenchmen's lead to a commanding-looking ten points.

Glasgow fought back though and midway through the half, after Montpellier had Maximiliano Bustos sinbinned, they scored a try of their own through Rory Lamont.

After a strong scrum, the ball was spun left and Duncan Weir fed Lamont, who applied the finish and recorded his first try since rejoining the Warriors.

As Glasgow grew in confidence, they had more possession and Weir missed a penalty before he finally drew his side level with just minutes remaining.

Replacement Francois Trinh-Duc did have a chance to win it for the home side but pushed his kick wide and a draw was perhaps a fair result in the end.

Crucially, it still keeps Glasgow in contention for qualification in Pool 3.
