Castres fly-half Benjamin Urdapilleta kicked three successful penalties to bring them to 10-9 at halftime.

France national inside centre Romain Ntamack’s scored again just after the break  before Urdapilleta and Thomas Ramos kicked more penalities to keep within reach.

Nakosi floated into action and setup Dumora for the clincher in the final minute to seal the win.
