Gloucester keep quarter-final hopes alive

Louis Rees-Zammit of Gloucester dives over to score his side's second try

Gloucester Rugby kept their Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final hopes alive with a 29-6 bonus point win over Montpellier in Pool 5 on Saturday night at Kingsholm.

After a quiet opening 20 minutes, the hosts were pinged for holding on at the breakdown and that allowed Francois Steyn the chance to put Montpellier ahead from the kicking tee and he did just that with the opening three-pointer.

Gloucester had to wait till six minutes before the interval to break down the stubborn Montpellier defence. It was Louis Rees-Zammit who took advantage of holes in the line and handed a delicious offload to Willi Heinz who sauntered over at the posts.

The second half was much more fruitful for the hosts, first running in a try through Rees-Zammit who was on the end of a nice move after a flick wide from Jason Woodward.

After that slick move, it would be powerful work from the forwards that gave Gloucester the crucial bonus point.

Ben Morgan was the first to go over on 57 minutes after a host of bruising phases battered the fractured Montpellier line.

And the fourth score came eight minutes later when the hosts worked the driving maul to perfection, with Todd Gleave under a pile of players.

That result eliminates Montpellier but gives Gloucester a chance of qualification with a trip to Pool 5 winners Toulouse next weekend in Round 6.
