Watch: Clermont Score Stunning 75m Team Try

Clermont were at their scintillating and stunning best on Saturday as the Top 14 leaders trounced the Exeter Chiefs at the Stade Marcel-Michelin.

First half tries from Benjamin Kayser, Noa Nakaitaci, Wesley Fofana and Nick Abendanon set up a comfortable 34-0 lead at halftime, before Perceli Yato extended the host’s advantage with a searing run through the middle of the Chiefs defence.

Clermont had been running rings around Exeter for most of the afternoon, repeatedly cutting through the Chiefs with a series of intricate passing moves, but the French leaders displayed their best attacking move of the afternoon with a breathtaking 75-metre team try that was expertly finished off by openside flanker Alexandre Lapandry.

 

Clermont stormed their way through the Exeter defence after Parra found second-row Arthur Iturria hovering around the fringes of the Clermont ruck.

Iturria soon found a supporting Remi Lamerat, who ripped off some great metres before finding Sébastien Vahaamahina in support on his inside.

After a quick recycle at the ruck, Parra fired the ball to Lamerat who shifted the pass quickly to Lapandry who crossed untouched to increase Clermont’s substantial lead.
