Perpignan brought the curtain down on a disappointing Heineken Cup campaign with a 34-6 victory over Benetton Treviso at Stade Aime Giral.
With both teams out of the Heineken Cup reckoning this Pool One game was a dead rubber, and it remained close until Charles Geli went over for the first try on the stroke of half-time. That paved the way for a deluge in the second half, with Marius Tincu crossing twice and Yoann Vivalda and Jean-Philippe Grandclaude also crossing the whitewash.
Nicolas Laharrague added two conversions and a penalty as the hosts exacted revenge for a shock defeat at the hands of the Italians in October.
