Montpellier beat Harlequins 26-19 to win the European Challenge Cup final at Lyon's Grand Stade on Friday.

Three Nick Evans penalties kept Quins in the game at 13-9 down at half-time after replacement Jesse Mogg went over for a wonderful try for Montpellier, converted by Demetri Catrakilis, who also hit two penalties.

But a second Mogg try, rounded out by Catrakilis's trusty boot saw Montpellier home for their first ever trophy despite a late Marlon Yarde try converted by Ben Botica, who also nailed a penalty.
