Glasgow made it two victories from two as they saw off a second-half comeback from Perpignan to claim a 26-18 Challenge Cup win.


Tries from Rufus McLean and Huw Jones helped establish a 14-5 lead at the interval.

However, when Lucas Dubois touched down on the hour, the visitors – assisted by a couple of penalties from Dorian Laborde – edged ahead 15-14.

But a yellow card for Tristan Labouteley handed the advantage to the home side and they retook the lead courtesy of a penalty try.

Another Laborde kick reduced the deficit but Sebastian Cancelliere, a minute from the end, safeguarded the result and secured a bonus point.

Connacht are in pole position for a place in the knockout stages after their 31-24 bonus-point win against 14-man Brive.

First-half tries from David Hawkshaw, Tom Daly and Diarmuid Kilgallen – after Abraham Papali’i was sent off for a head-on-head collision after just 23 minutes – was followed by Shane Delahunt’s score to make it six wins from their last eight games in all competitions.


Flanker Francke Horn scored a pair of tries in Emirates Lions’ first victory – a 30-12 win over Stade Francais.

Horn dived over in the corner for his first try before breaking clear to crash over for a second and with Jordan Hendrikse converting both.

Scrum-half James Hall got the visitors on the scoreboard on the stroke of half-time to make it 20-5 at the break.

But Lions full-back Andries Coetzee crossed with 15 minutes remaining after latching onto a superb long pass to restore the 20-point advantage and Ruan Smith’s try made sure of the bonus point.
