Biarritz are looking good in Pool Four of the Heineken Cup after they convincingly beat Ulster 35-15 at the Parc des Sports Aguilera on the weekend. The bonus point win is their second of the campaign, placing them in good stead going into the next round.
Dimitri Yachvili scored 15 points with the boot as he kicked three penalties and three conversions, as well as set up one of the tries for last seasons finalists.
Zee Ngwenya scored twice, while Manuel Carizza and Sylvain Marconnet picked up a try apiece. For Ulster, Andrew Trimble scored in the 66th minute and Stephen Ferris picked up a consolation try on the stroke of fulltime.
Ngwenyas first try came after he plucked a Ruan Pienaar high ball out of the air and made his way rapidly down field. The ball was recycled and a few phases laster, he found himself crossing in the left hand corner. Marconnet finished nicely when Yachvilli flicked the ball inside beautifully as the hosts scored their third try.
The final try from Biarritz was finished by Ngwenya but started way back in their half as they produced a fantastic passage of classic French running rugby, albeit with a few foreigners involved. Accurate passing, great running lines, and after sweeping left then right again, it ended with a hooker hitting the line hard then passing to the flying wing.
The three best tries of the game are featured in the video below. Enjoy.
