Castres victorious as Paul Willemse dismissal proves turning point

Castres revived their Champions Cup ambitions with a 29-23 Pool 4 victory over Montpellier.

Challenge Cup holders Montpellier were made to pay for their indiscipline when Paul Willemse became their second player in a fortnight to be given a red card after tries from Akapusi Qera, Jesse Mogg and Nemani Nadolo had put them in sight of victory.

Willemse's dismissal for a shoulder charge then led to Castres' Alexander Bias securing the winning try, after they had remained in contention from Horacio Agulla's earlier score and 19 points from Benjamin Urdapilleta's boot.
