1:55 pm on 30 October 2010

Racing Metro were lucky to come away with a share of the spoils in an 18-18 draw with Perpignan in the French top 14 rugby competition.

The Catalan side dominated most of the match and it took a penalty from Jonathan Wisniewski in the final minute of the game for the Parisian side to pull level with the 2009 Top 14 champions.

Racing Metro started in positive fashion and were soon ahead thanks to a penalty by Francois Steyn in the eighth minute.

That start was to set the tone for the rest of the match, which remained try-less as both sides relied on kicking to get points on the board.

Steyn kicked a second penalty on 31 minutes while Wisniewski kicked the first of his two penalties in the 24th minute, adding a second on 27 minutes.

Jerome Porical kicked all of Perpignan's points nailing six penalties in the 18-all draw.
