Montpellier continued their strong start to their Amlin Challenge Cup campaign on Thursday with a 39-14 win at home to Bourgoin.
Montpellier outscored their visitors four tries to one at Stade Yves du Manoir to sit comfortably at the top of Pool Three with a perfect record of three wins from three starts.
The hosts were made to work for their bonus point however as Bourgoin led 14-10 after 25 minutes thanks notably to a penalty try.
Les Heraultais rallied to lead 16-14 at the break as Argentine backs Santiago Fernandez and Martin Bustos Moyano both touched down.
It was all Montpellier in the second half though as the host scored two more tries before the hour mark to secure victory.
