Valuable win: Timoci Nagusa scores for Montpellier

Montpellier put themselves back into play-off contention in the Top 14 thanks to a 38-6 victory over Stade Français at the Stade Yves du Manoir on Friday.

The bonus-point victory was the hosts' third successive victory in the competition and propelled them into fourth place on the table as the race for a place in the top six heats up.

The visitors' woeful defensive record in the league continued on Friday night as Montpellier ran in four tries with Martin Bustos Moyano ending the match with an impressive 26-point haul.

The Montpellier wing scored two tries, added two conversions and kicked four penalties for his team.

Centre Paul Bosch and winger Timoci Nagusa also crossed the whitewash - the latter banking the all-important bonus-point try with replacement Benoit Paillaugue rounding out the scoring with a last-minute conversion.

The scorers:

For Montpellier:
Tries: Bustos Moyano 2, Bosch, Nagusa
Cons: Bustos Moyano 2, Paillaugue
Pens: Bustos Moyano 4

For Stade Français:
Pens: Dupuy 2
