Leader Vannes, beaten for the first time this season the previous day in Colomiers, resumed its march forward by largely dominating Agen 47 to 10, Friday during the 11th day of Pro D2.
Behind the Bretons, Mont-de-Marsan won, at the end of a close match, the clash against Provence Rugby (20-18), and took the runner-up place.
In bad shape, Dax, the other Landes club, sank in Hérault, losing 40-14 against Béziers, who won the offensive bonus and took the opportunity to climb to 5th place.
