Perpignan secure bonus-point win

Perpignan kept themselves right in the chase for a Heineken Cup quarter-final spot with a 44-9 bonus-point victory against Pool Five opponents Treviso at Stadio Comunale di Monigo.

Treviso had caused a huge upset by beating the Catalans outfit in last season's competition, and they looked capable of pulling off another shock result when three penalties from fly-half Willem de Waal put them 9-3 up.

But full-back Jerome Porical kicked his second and third penalties for the visitors to level the scores by half-time, before Perpignan took control after the break as Gregory Le Corvec, Farid Sid, Nicolas Laharrague and Julien Candelon (two) all crossed to seal a comfortable win.

The French side are likely to need at least a win from their final pool clash with the Scarlets if they are to progress as group winners.
