Wasps looking for five-timer

Wasps will try to make it five wins from five meetings with Bordeaux-Begles on their return to the European Rugby Challenge Cup at Stade Chaban Delmas on Saturday in Pool 3.

The 2003 winners, who last played in the competition in 2013/14, have won all four of their matches against the French club so far.

Key facts

  • Bordeaux-Begles suffered a 47-14 loss the last time they hosted Wasps, in the opening round of the 2011/12 event, their heaviest home defeat in European competition.
  • Each of Bordeaux-Begles’ last four Challenge Cup ties have been won by the visiting side, with the TOP 14 team winning two and losing two.
  • Bordeaux-Begles stole 10 line-outs in the Challenge Cup last season, their average of 1.7 per game being the joint most with La Rochelle in 2018/19.

Bordeaux-Begles edge out Wasps in Challenge Cup thriller

Bordeaux-Begles fly-half Matthieu Jalibert

Bordeaux-Begles secured all five points in a pulsating 40-30 win over Wasps in Challenge Cup Pool 3 on Saturday night.

Fly-half Matthieu Jalibert put the hosts 6-0 up inside 10 minutes with two penalty kicks before Wasps’ No.10 Billy Searle repeated the trick, levelling up the scores on 20 minutes with two of his own.

Wasps were only level for five minutes when the visitors were penalised for a high tackle in Jalibert’s kicking range and he would make no mistake.

It took until the final minute of the first half for the opening try as Cameron Woki ran down the right after a high ball before Seta Tamanivalu arrived in support and dotted down for the first score of the match. Jalibert would convert from a tight angle.

In a chaotic second half, six tries were equally shared between the two sides as Jack Willis, Tom Cruse, Dan Robson, Yann Lesgourges and Scott Higginbotham all got in on the act.

However, the crucial Bordeaux-Begles try came just two minutes from time as Romain Buros dotted down after some more excellent work from Jalibert to cut through the Wasps line, giving Bordeaux a try bonus point and denying Wasps a defensive bonus point.

Wasps return home in Round 2 to face Agen next Saturday while the French side will travel to take on Edinburgh Rugby.
