Defending Champ Leinster Ties Montpellier in Heineken Cup Rugby

Nov. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Jonathan Sexton kicked a penalty in the final seconds to give defending champion Leinster a 16-16 tie with Montpellier in their opening Heineken Cup rugby match.

Sexton kicked 11 points and Sean Cronin scored a try for Leinster, which rallied from a 10-point deficit in the second half in France.

Ronan O’Gara’s drop goal in injury time gave Munster a 23-21 win over the Northampton Saints, last season’s Heineken Cup runner-up.

Leicester Tigers won 28-12 at Aironi, Edinburgh beat London Irish 20-19, Scarlets defeated Castres 31-23, Ospreys beat Biarritz 28-21 and Ulster topped Clermont Auvergne 16-11 in today’s other matches in Europe’s top club competition.
