Argentine fly half Benajmín Urdapilleta continued his fine form this weekend in scorting eighteen points in Oyonnax's home win over Lyon. The ten time capped Puma was on target with his goalkicking and also scored one try and helped create another. Urdapilleta is the second higest scorer in the Top 14 this season. With 297 points he is behind only Jonathan Wisniewski who has 303 points for Grenoble. With one round remaining Oyonnax sit in fifth position on 62 competition points. Both Bordeaux and Racing Métro are on 60 and could overtake Oyonnax as a result. Oyonnax play Toulon away next round while Racing Métro have Castres at home and Bordeaux face Toulouse on the road. Should Oyonnax do well and reach the barrage then Urdapilleta is highly likely to be the top points scored of the French season.
