In the other encounter, Glasgow Warriors produced a superb comeback to stun La Rochelle 27-24 at the Stade Marcel-Deflandre. The hosts were excellent in the opening half and went 18-6 ahead via tries from Dany Priso and Zeno Kieft, but Callum Gibbins responded for the Warriors to reduce the arrears.

Although Jules Plisson was on target from the tee twice in the second period, Glasgow were the better team after the break and deservedly won the game via Niko Matawalu and Kyle Steyn.
