Eurowatch : Montpellier v Brive (8-0-review)


Leinster have Exeter Chiefs, Montpellier and Glasgow Warriors
in their Rugby Champions Cup pool and we'll be keeping tabs
on them all over the coming weeks with our 80-word reviews


Winless Brive started both halves brightly but this only served to anger Cotter’s men who demonstrated that any kind of mistake will be punished by their table-topping lineup.  Be it Jesse Mogg attacking from deep, Cruden’s deft offloads and grubbers, Steyn’s booming torpedos, Pienaar’s placekicking, Bismarck du Plessis finishing mauls, Nadolo finishing his hat-trick; Montpellier’s scoring options seemed endless.  If Leinster want a winning European start, shortcomings like dodgy lineouts and a brittle centre channel will have to be fixed.
