  • Full-time: Montpellier 14-15 Leicester

  • CONVERSION, LEICESTER, LAMB! 14-15! It's the winning kick. There's time for the restart though here.

  • TRY, LEICESTER, GONEVA! 14-13! What about this. Leicester score at the death and it comes from an overlap on the right wing as Ayerza sends over his centre, who wisely runs closer to the uprights.

  • Montpellier survive for now after Lamb wrongly opts to grubber through in the 22. That leads to the home side clearing up to halfway with just two minutes remaining here at the Stade Yves-du-Manoir.

  • So Leicester are in losing bonus-point territory now and also know a converted try would win it. They are only 20 metres from the try-line too as the kitchen sink is about to be thrown at the home line.

  • PENALTY, LEICESTER, LAMB! 14-8! Scrum penalty for the Tigers and Lamb makes no mistake from distance.

  • An error from Montpellier as they look to do something slick in the backline. So frustrating for the pack as their solid scrum platform comes to nought on halfway. Leicester to put in now 40 metres out.

  • Leicester will need something special if they're to recover from this. Territory is the first job as they are stuck on their own 22 in possession. Lamb eventually decides to kick long into the home 22.

  • CONVERSION, MONTPELLIER, ESCANDE! 14-5! It's seven points as the lead grows to nine as time ticks on.

  • TRY, MONTPELLIER, DUPONT! 12-5! It came from Gorgodze busting the fringe defence before offloading to his wing Dupont, who strolled in next to the uprights. This should be a seven-point score for them.

  • This is good territory for Montpellier now as they look to build on this two-point lead. They're set to throw in 20 out as Paillaugue and Waldrom now go for Eric Escande and Jordan Crane respectively.

  • End-to-end stuff now as hooker Youngs breaks before Montpellier pounce on loose ball at ruck time. Luckily for Leicester, Bowden backtracks to halfway before being dragged out for a home line-out.

  • A stoppage here as Paillaugue is down after seemingly being knocked out attempting a hit on Hamilton. He is now back on his feet and isn't replaced. Leicester ball here on the halfway line with T Youngs.

  • Changes: Johnnie Beattie and Ryan Lamb come on for the respective teams, replacing Tulou and Flood.

  • CONVERSION, MONTPELLIER, PAILLAUGUE! 7-5! Well, it has cost Flood as Paillaugue adds the extra two.

  • TRY, MONTPELLIER, SELPONI! 5-5! What a reply. Paillaugue breaks before offloading to the scoring ten

  • Flood misses the conversion though which could prove costly. He's also grimacing after that strike.

  • TRY, LEICESTER, TOM YOUNGS! 0-5! It's Ben's brother. Ben found hooker Tom who crashed over five out.

  • Ben Youngs is kicking beautifully today as he again sends a kick into touch on the bounce. It is a Montpellier line-out then on their own 22 as Bowden shakes off a knock and gets back into position.

  • So close for Benjamin and Leicester as the wing thought he'd scored but the TMO showed his boot had brushed the sideline. Net result, it's a Montpellier line-out on their own five metre. Crucial spell.
