Clermont

Setariki Tuicuvu of ASM Clermont Auvergne

A hat-trick of tries by full-back Setariki Tuicuvu and centre Apisai Naqalevu helped ASM Clermont Auvergne to a runaway win and to the top of Pool 1 in the European Rugby Challenge Cup.

The Fijian pair were in unstoppable form as the French side ran in ten tries, all converted by fly-half Patricio Fernandez.

The battling visitors had to be content with consolation tries in either half by prop Mesake Doge and full-back Luke Samoa who also added a conversion.

By half-time, Clermont had already taken charge and built up a 28-7 lead but it was after the interval that they got into top gear and scored almost at will in the final quarter.

The home side also had a brace of tries from lock forward Peceli Yato and others from centre Peter Bentham and substitute Arthur Iturria.

Timisoara must try and lift themselves after two heavy defeats in which they have conceded 124 points before the two sides meet for the return in Romania on December 8.
