Biarritz score a sensational team try against Montpellier

BY Grant Constable  ·  Thursday Dec 8, 2011

Zee Ngwenya scored again in the Top 14 this past weekend as Biarritz put together an incredible team try against Montpellier, with the American flyer landing on the end of a serious try of the season contender. Montpellier won the game 30-23.

Talisman Imanol Harinordoquy was brilliant as he handled the ball more than once and offloaded superbly in the tackle as Biarritz worked their way up field with Dane Haylett-Petty, who supplied two outstanding passes, while impressive Prop Fabien Barcella and Ngwenya were up in support.

The Harinordoquy name hit the headlines recently when his father stormed the pitch to get involved in a brawl against Bayonne. Lucien Harinordoquy has since apologised for what he did.

“I apologise to the fans present at Aguilera, from Bayonne and Biarritz, to the two teams and their staff, to the National Rugby League, the French Rugby Federation and the rugby world in general.

“Under pressure for various reasons, I lost all control. I regret having behaved in such a manner during such a festival of rugby,” he said. Biarritz accepted the apology and hoped the other parties would too. 

This weekend they face Benetton Treviso in the Heineken Cup, with the Italian side all too aware of the threats that they pose, with head coach Franco Smith picking out Ngwenya and Harinordoquy as two that could give them trouble.

“Ngwenya is lightening fast and, as well as his strengths as a finisher and try scorer, he is also a great chaser of their kicking game. And at the heart of their team is Harinordoquy, he is such an immense figure as their leader and in charge of their line-out,” he said ahead of the Pool 5 clash.

He’s not far off and this try shows why. Absolutely brilliant from everyone involved.
