James fires Clermont to victory

Thirteen points from the boot of fly-half Brock James saw Clermont Auvergne prevail 23-13 in this all-French Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-final clash with La Rochelle.

A try from Aurelien Rougerie and a conversion and two penalties from James put the visitors, who dropped into the tournament after Heineken Cup elimination, 13-6 to the good at the break, Greg Goosen kicking two penalties for La Rochelle.

Goosen scored a converted try with 15 minutes to play to level the scores but a try from Kini Murimurivalu and a further penalty from James sealed the win.
