Opening try: Vilimoni Delasau

Clermont missed the chance to move top of the Top 14 standings on Friday after they fell 20-15 to Montauban at Stade Sapiac.

Vern Cotter's side were looking to kick on from last week's 30-point drubbing of Bourgoin but they struggled for any penetration against their hosts.

Former Auvergne wing Vilimoni Delasau brought Clermont's worst nightmare true when he went over for a score on 33 minutes and thanks to the boot of former Valke fly-half Len Olivier, Montauban were always an arms length away.

Clermont meanwhile could only call upon the boot of scrum-half Morgan Parra, who kicked a total of four penalties, as they remain behind league leaders Castres who travel to Stade Pierre Rajon on Saturday.
