Castres 31-23 Racing 92 (8-0-review)

Leinster face Castres, Montpellier & Northampton 
in the Rugby Champions Cup and we have been 
following their progress with some"8-0-reviews"...


A Ben Arous try broke the deadlock on 15m but the home side didn’t fear the star-studded champions and their Kockott-led fast-paced rugby had the scores level by half-time. A yellow for Racing’s Andreu allowed them the space to nudge ahead when Caminati flicked it as he was getting smashed to Palis who scored. The ever-offloading Nakarawa pinched a try to get them within 3 but Urdipaletta crossed to seal it at the death. Castres looking good in 4th spot.
