The Aviron bayonnais Challenge win counter remains stuck at zero, after the new defeat on Saturday against Benetton Trévise (26-7), the third in as many games. However, the Basques scored first by Orabe, but a wave followed in the sky and white in-goal. The Italians scored four tries and won an improved success. The Benetton is thus qualified for the round of 16 of the competition.
Stade Français reacted well after the setback in South Africa against the Lions on the second day (30-12). Gonzalo Quesada’s men won against the same Johannesburg Lions (17-7), in Jean-Bouin. Led by seven points at the break, the Parisians overturned the match after the break, thanks to the foot of Joris Segonds and a try from Laurent Panis.
