Biarritz score ten tries as they run riot against hapless Agen

Biarritz score ten tries as they run riot against hapless Agen

One of the performances of the weekend in the Top 14 came from Biarritz as they swept aside Agen with a mighty 65-22 rout, scoring ten tries in the process. Biarritz blitzed Agen with five tries in each half, with forwards Wenceslas Lauret and Benoit August both scoring hat-tricks in front of their home crowd.

Wing Zee Ngwenya got two tries, while Damien Traille and Alexandre Barozzi scored one each. Ngwenya and Traille would have been celebrating their new contracts, as they've both extended for a few more years.

It was nice revenge for Biarritz, lost to Agen earlier in the season. They made sure there wasn't to be a repeat of that, as they flew into a 34-3 halftime lead. More tries were scored in the second half, but Agen added some respectability by scoring a few themselves.

Keep a look out for the hands of scrumhalf Dimitri Yachvili, who was once again outstanding with his distribution and one or two neat flicks inside, keeping the defenders honest.

With the big win, Biarritz are now up to fourth on the table, while Agen continue to struggle down at second from the bottom. A tryfest, enjoy the highlights.

Commentators excitement gets the better of him slightly at 1:55

Also, don't want to take it away from them but when Agen score thei first try, at 2.33 I swear he just hands the try scorer the ball forward. Clearly he doesn't do a pass, I'm not saying there is anything wrong with just giving another player the ball but it looks like he just gives the ball to the scorer whilst the receiver is in front.

Traille plays well for BO, but he always seems to fall short when playing for Les Bleus. Beauxis, who generally always looks on form (but makes mistakes due to flashy play like King Carlos often did/does), is a much better choice for France's no. 10 spot in my opinion - not that anyone really cares.

I think Ulster will put on a ten-try rout this weekend against Biarritz, and finally get through to the quarter-finals after such a long wait.

The defence from both teams was shocking who did Agen score that first try five metres from the line and everyone bar Harinordoquy ball watching! I think Ulster have something be worried about with 10 tires in a match but Biarritz defence looked ragged at the best of times just my 2 cents I suppose! 22points from Agen isn't half bad
