Exeter put in a magnificent performance to conquer Montpellier in Champions Cup Pool 3 with flanker Don Armand scoring two tries.

  • Outside centre Joe Tomane was the first to cross the line, but Armand scored the first of his close-range tries, with Gareth Steenson added the conversion and a penalty two minutes later.
  • However, Benoit Paillaugue then scored, before a brilliant try by Fijian wing Nemani Nadolo gave the hosts a 17-10 lead at half time.
  • Ian Whitten's converted try for the Chiefs levelled matters on 44 minutes but Nadolo re-established Montpellier's lead straight away with his second try of the game.
  • Back came Exeter, and Armand burrowed over for his second of the game, with Steensen converting to level the scores, before he clinched the win with eight minutes remaining with a penalty.
  • Prior to this game, Montpellier had been beaten at home just four times in the history of the competition, and had won their last four home Champions Cup games.
  • Exeter now sit second in Pool 3 with eight points, behind Leinster on 10. Montpellier, who lost at Leinster last weekend, sit third on two points, with Glasgow last on zero.
