  • L'ASM sort la grosse artillerie face à l'Ulster

Privés du ballon en première période (59% de possession pour Ulster) les hommes de Franck Azéma ont limité la casse pour revenir à seulement un point à la pause (9-10). La meilleure défense de la Champions Cup avant cette 4e journée s'est rapidement détachée au score grâce à son chef d'orchestre John Cooney qui, après avoir inscrit une pénalité (4e), a inscrit un essai au pied des poteaux (7e) après une course tranchante de son troisième-ligne Reidy. Arthur Iturria a ensuite quitté le terrain en raison d'une blessure à une épaule. Malmenés en début de match, les coéquipiers de Morgan Parra ont pris l'ascendant en 2 période.

Bousculée, l'ASM Clermont a mis du temps à rentrer dans le match.

Au retour des vestiaires, Clermont a renversé les Irlandais par l'intermédiaire d'Aliveriti Raka qui a montré toute sa puissance physique pour résister à la pression de trois adversaires et marquer le premier essai transformé des Auvergnats (49e, 16-10). Mais les joueurs de l'Ulster n'ont jamais su trouver une nouvelle faille dans la défense des Jaunards qui ont enfoncé le clou à quatre minutes de la fin avec George Moala qui a su percer le rideau défensif de l'Ulster et, en deux temps, aplatir juste derrière la ligne.

Clermont a dominé l'Ulster (29-13), samedi, lors de la 5e et avant-dernière journée de la Coupe d'Europe de rugby, et s'assure du même coup d'une place en quarts de finale.
