"It's a shame we didn't get the bonus point, we had the chances. We had two or three lineouts not far out which were chances to score at the end," fly-half Jules Plisson told Canal+.

At Stade Marcel-Deflandre, stand-off Plisson opened the scoring for the home side with a ninth minute penalty in the Atlantic coast derby.

Kerr-Barlow crossed the whitewash eight minutes later after clinically sniping from a ruck following a Geoffrey Doumayrou break.

La Rochelle's first half dominance and confidence with ball in hand continued as Plisson chipped from inside his own half before Jeremy Sinzelle crossed in the corner.

Plisson added the extras to make it 17-0 at the break before driving rain began to fall.

Jalibert replaced Ben Botica at the interval before he and Plisson traded shots at goal and Gibbes' men led 20-3 with a quarter of an error-strewn second half impacted by the wet conditions remaining.

The home side went looking for a third try and the crucial bonus point but Jalibert kicked another penalty to close the gap to 14 points with 10 minutes to go.

Despite spending the closing minutes deep inside opposition territory Gibbes' side failed to cross for a third time and missed the chance to take top spot.

Earlier, Springboks Cobus Reinach and Jan Serfontein were crucial in Montpellier's 30-6 bonus point win over Brive.

World Cup winner Reinach set-up two tries and Serfontein, who last played for his country in 2017, crossed the whitewash on two occasions in Johan Goosen's first match since February.

On Saturday, Reinach's fellow world champion Cheslin Kolbe pulled out of Toulouse's 16-7 loss at home to Lyon just before kick-off with a back problem.

I just think that he’s been in the office a long time. And I don’t notice what he did for young Black men — or Black people in general,” said Crosby, a junior at Morehouse College who is attending classes remotely from his home in Illinois. “I could say this, that my father said that he made more than he had ever made with [President Donald] Trump [in office] than he did Obama.
