Six of the best for Castres Olympique against Dragons

Castres Olympique wowed the crowd with a superlative performance against Dragons – coming out on top 42-14 in a crunch Pool 1 clash at Stade Pierre Fabre.

Six tries from the hosts secured their bonus point – and their place at the top of the pool, toppling today’s opponents.

Tries from Thomas Fortunel, Julien Dumora, Anthony Jelonch, Wilfrid Hounkpatin, Thomas Combezou and Kevin Firmin – all converted by Dumora – gave them a compelling and impressive victory.

A shocked Dragons side could respond only in the second half, with a brace of tries from Jared Rosser, both converted by Sam Davies.

Those scores all came after the hour mark, though, and it was too little too late for them to reassert themselves and their position at the pinnacle of the pool.

Castres are unbeaten at home in European competition since December 2015 – now a streak that stretches to 13 games.
