Provence Rugby beats Mont-de-Marsan to the wire

On the wire, Provence Rugby beat Thursday Mont-de-Marsan (20-19) during the opening match of the 11th day of Pro D2. Led by two points in the 79th minute (19-17), the Aixois relied on the boot of Irish opener John Mc Philipps to clinch a third victory in a row after Montauban on October 28 and Béziers on November 4 .

With 26 points and one more meeting, Aix goes back to seventh place, four points behind Agen, second and first provisional qualifier for the semi-finals of accession to the Top 14.

Mont-de-Marsan, who took the defensive bonus point, stagnated in the middle of the table.
