Clermont Auvergne 36 Viadana 18

Two tries from fly-half Brent Russell and one each from Seremia Bai, replacement Vincent Debaty and Thibaut Privat gave Clermont Auvergne a bonus-point win at home to Viadana in Heineken Cup Pool Three today.

There were also three conversions from scrum-half Morgan Parra - who kicked a penalty too - and one from replacement Brock James as the Frenchmen got their campaign off to a winning start.

Viadana failed to cross the line but stayed in touch for much of the match thanks to three penalties from number 10 Pierre Hola, two from full-back Gary Law and another from prop Miguel Alonso.
