Martín Bustos Moyano returns in style for Montpellier

Uncapped Argentine wing, Martín Bustos Moyano returned from injury to score 16 points for red-hot Montpellier in their Top 14 victory vs Bayonne this past weekend. His contribution of four penalties and two conversions saw Montpellier secure a positive 29-18 away victory vs a side that was in first place earlier in the season. Fellow Argentine players Santiago Fernández and Juan Figallo both played for Montpellier also. French international flyhalf, François Trinh-Duc scored a try for Montpellier but had to leave the field late in the game with a thigh injury and has been ruled out of rugby for six weeks.

The return of Bustos Moyano has come at the perfect time with Argentina set to play Italy, France and Ireland in international matches this month. Bustos Moyano has been selected in the squad for the first time ever and on current form is a real chance at not only making the 22 but making the starting XV. Fellow Pumas hopeful, fullback Marcelo Bosch also returned to action as Biarritz won their match. Both players may well be ousting established players from the Pumas lineup when the team is named to play Italy next week.
