In the end Dan Carter played only 80 minutes of Heineken Cup rugby. Perpignan did what they had to and won 48-16 with a bonus point in Treviso on Saturday, but with Leicester's defeat went their slim hopes of quarter-final qualification.

The French visitors led 24-9 by half-time and never looked like letting the Italians back into the match.

Tries from Guilhem Guirado, Nicolas Durand, Farid Sid (2), Adrien Plante, Olivier Olibeau, Christophe Manas and Jerome Porical made it another miserable day for Treviso, who finish bottom of the pool with no points.

Kicking points for Perpignan were shared out between Porical, Steve Meyer and David Mele.

Full-back Brendan Williams got Treviso's only try, which came midway through the second half, with their other points coming from the boot of Andrea Marcato.
