Perpignan bounced back from last weekend's high-scoring defeat at Scarlets with a commanding 35-14 Heineken Cup victory over Treviso at Stade Aimé Giral.

The 2003 runners-up had to come from 14-7 down early in the second half but moved comfortably clear with a late charge.

A penalty try edged the French hosts ahead and further scorers from Gerrie Britz and Damien Chouly in the closing stages sealed a precious bonus-point triumph.

Full-back Jerome Porical dived over early for Perpignan, however Treviso hit back through two tries from Tommaso Benvenuti either side of half-time.

Perpignan pulled back to 14-14 when Gavin Hume crossed in the 56th minute and persistent pressure was subsequently rewarded with the penalty try - converted by David Mele.

Replacement Britz extended the lead on 69 minutes and any faint hopes of a Treviso comeback were killed off by Choly's late score.
