Clermont 35-6 Biarritz
Parc des Sports Marcel Michelin

Replacement scrum-half Thierry Lacrampe secured a bonus point win over Biarritz for Clermont.

The Basque visitors were woeful at times in the second half as their porous defence gave up against the invention of Brock James.

Julien Malzieu snatched the first try only in the 50th minute before Gerhard Vosloo capitalised on a miscued kick from Julien Peyrelongue to pounce on the loose ball and score.

Regan King crossed in the left corner as Biarritz's spirit appeared to evaporate, before Lacrampe rounded things off to keep Clermont top.

The scorers:

For Clermont:
Tries: Malzieu, Vosloo, King, Lacrampe
Cons: James 3
