David Skrela kick 14 points as Clermont Auvergne defeated Biarritz 19-12 in the Top 14 to maintain an undefeated home record which stretches back almost three years.

However, the hosts were unable to clinch a bonus point which would have taken them above Toulon at the top of the standings in the French league.

Clermont were in front after just two minutes when Nao Seru Nakaitaci charged over for what proved to be the only try of the game with Skrela adding the conversion.

Skrela added three penalties while Biarritz got on the board thanks to penalties from Benoit Baby and Jean-Pascal Barraque, but the home side were 13-6 ahead at half-time.

Clermont were quickly 10 points to the good early in the second period thanks to two more successful kicks from Skrela, before a dogged Biarritz stayed in touch at 16-12 when Baby and Julien Peyrelongue fired over a penalty apiece.

Skrela then calmed Clermont's nerves with another penalty late in the game.
