Montpellier score four great tries against Agen at Stade Armandie

Montpellier score four great tries against Agen at Stade Armandie

Montpellier continued their positive start under Fabien Galthi as they scored some fantastic tries on their way to thumping Agen 35-6 in the Top 14 on Friday. They scored four very well taken tries, with the first in particular a classic.

They started well with what is probably the try of the match, as Fulgence Ouedraogo got on the end of a wonderful flowing move that had some incredibly neat touches with offloads both in and before contact.

The Montpellier captain scored again later as he combined with Francoi Trinh-Duc again, the flyhalf himself having scored too. In the second half wing Tomoci Nagusa also scored a neatly taken try as he stepped his way through the traffic with ease.

Ouedraogo has said it was their best game of the season, adding that the atmosphere within the camp is at an all time high, a far cry from the past where he said at times he found it difficult to drag himself to training.

"Here we go with a smile, with joy. We train seriously, and apply ourselves. At Montpellier, we've known seasons when there were a lot of bad things going on around us. That's why now you see so much pleasure and joy.

"There is a lot of momentum. That's has been taught and we must continue to live it. It makes for fun off the field, and we then communicate it to the fans," he said.

Montpellier now look like they could well be serious title contenders if they keep this up. They have moved up to second on the table, one point behind Racing Metro, while Agen sit second from the bottom and continue to struggle.
