Scrumhalf Dimitri Yachvilli kicked 17 points as Biarritz beat Grenoble 33-16 at the Parc des Sports d’Aguilera on Friday night. He also set up a try with a neat bit of ball control that looked more suited to a football field than a muddy rugby pitch.
Second half tries by Zee Ngwenya and Erik Lund contributed to the win in wet conditions, but it was Yachvilli’s kicking prowess that kept the scoreboard ticking as he slotted every attempt on goal.
Lund’s try came from a great bit of play by the multi-talented Yachvilli, as he dribbled the ball ahead then went for the inside-backheel-flick, knowing there was support looming. It worked – only just – and Lund gathered, dived over, and sealed the win.
