WITH PLAYERS IN such a vulnerable position crouching over a ruck, it’s good to see something like this clamped down on.
Jake White’s Montpellier picked up their second win of the season at the weekend away to Bordeaux-Begles, but they were made to sweat, carving out a 24-22 victory.

They had to spend 10 minutes down to 14 men in the first half when Paul Willemse was yellow-carded for flying off his feet into a ruck, practically bending Bordeaux scrum-half Henei Adams in half.

With Willemse outweighing the diminutive Adams by almost 55kg, the impact looked pretty ferocious.
With Willemse in the bin, Bordeaux scored 10 unanswered points, but their own momentum was halted when Matthew Clarkin was also binned just before half time.
