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.
