Biarritz Win Promotion to the Top 14 After a Penalty Shoot-out with Bayonne

Posted by
Steffon Armitage will never have to pay for a drink in Biarritz again. After their promotion decider against Basque rivals Bayonne was tied at 6-6 after normal time, the match finished on a penalty shootout and saw Armitage strike the winning kick!
Some finish to the game and that’s why forwards should practice their kicking, delighted to see former Munster players David O’Callaghan, Billy Scannell and James Hart.

What a finish to the game, Biarritz were once a major powerhouse in French and European rugby, remember them in the Heineken Cup final against Munster in 2006? Could the good times be coming back to the Southern club of France.
