Heineken Cup round-up: Humphreys try gives Ulster win over Clermont
Sunday 13 November 2011
In Pool One of the Heineken Cup, in Belfast, Ulster beat one of the more fancied French teams, Clermont Auvergne, 16-11. The fly-half Ian Humphreys scored all the province's points, including the winning try. Seru Noa Nakaitaci scored Clermont's try and David Skrela kicked two penalties. Clermont took a losing bonus point, for finishing within seven points, that will be... well, a bonus when it comes to totting up the final table.
In the same pool, Leicester won 28-12 in Italy against Aironi but, perhaps equally importantly, didn't take a bonus point. Tom Croft, Alesana Tuilagi and Niall Morris scored the Tigers' three tries. Aironi's points came from kicks.
In Pool Five, the Ospreys beat Biarritz 28-21 at home. Tommy Bowe scored the Welsh region's try and Dan Biggar kicked 23 points, with the conversion and seven penalties. Iain Balshaw scored two tries for the Basque club.
In the Amlin Challenge Cup, the Newport Gwent Dragons beat Cavalieri Prato 33-3, Newcastle beat Lyon 27-19, Bayonne beat Rovigo 43-10, Agen beat La Vila 50-10 and Brive beat Sale 26-18.
