Exeter secured a potentially crucial bonus point as they beat Montpellier to keep alive their hopes of reaching the European Champions Cup quarter-finals.

The Premiership side scored six tries, five of which came in the second half, against the subdued Top 14 leaders at Sandy Park.

Exeter moved second in Pool Three, one point ahead of Montpellier.

They play Glasgow in their final game next week, while the French side face unbeaten pool leaders Leinster.

If Leinster beat Glasgow on Sunday they will qualify for the last eight as pool winners, while Exeter could join them as one of the best second-placed teams if they beat the Scots.
