The ex-Saracens flyer bettered Napolioni Nalaga’s long-standing tally and set his side on the way to a triumph which leaves them eight points behind table-toppers Montpellier.
Semi Radradra, Mathieu Bastareaud and Facundo Isa also went over in the first half, with a converted Vincent Martin try all Montpellier could come up with as they went into the break trailing 29-7.
Gabriel Ngandebe and Kelian Galletier touched down after the interval for Vern Cotter’s men, but the damage had already been done.
