Laharrague the hero for Aironi

Julien Laharrague scored a late drop-goal to hand Aironi a dramatic 28-27 victory over Biarritz in Pool 4 of the Heineken Cup.

After an early penalty from Tito Tebaldi - the first of four successful kicks from him - Biarritz earned a penalty try and a second score from Takudzwa Ngwenya.

The crowd continued to be entertained, with Iain Balshaw and Charles Gimenez crossing for Biarritz and James Marshall, Nick Williams and Matteo Pratichetti touching down for the hosts. Dimitri Yachvili slotted two conversions and a penalty as the visitors looked to have secured a slender win, only for Laharrague to turn the match on its head.
