Castres picked up only their third win of the Top 14 season on Sunday as they beat Agen 43-28 at Stade Pierre Fabre in a thrilling match.

Late crossings from flank Anthony Jelonch and full-back Julien Dumora – their second of the game – secured a much-needed victory at home.

The other tries came from Armand Batlle and Benjamin Urdapilleta while for Agen Denis Marchois, Mathieu Lamoulie and Filipo Nakosi scored.
