Facing the prospect of relegation Bayonne hosted Castres in a round 20 Top 14 match on Saturday. The result sees Bayonne sitting in 10th position on 41 competition points. Castres remain bottom on 34, some six points behind the 12th placed Brive and La Rochelle. The last second miracle victory came via the boot of Córdoba outside back Martín Bustos Moyano. From a wide angle Bustos Moyano landed a difficult attempt to secure victory and he was received as a hero by his teammates and the faithful at the Stade Jean Dauger. Aged 29 Bustos Moyano remains a Rugby World Cup option for Los Pumas. He has been capped four times to date, most recently against Georgia in San Juan in June 2013. He is yet to be selected by head coach Daniel Hourcade who replaced Santiago Phelan in October 2014. Hourcade is identifying sixty players from which to select his World Cup squad. Bustos Moyano is highly likely to be in the initial list.
