Edinburgh seeking Bordeaux-Begles hat-trick

Edinburgh Rugby wing Duhan van der Merwe

Edinburgh Rugby will be looking to complete a hat-trick of victories over Bordeaux-Begles when they host the TOP 14 high-flyers in a top-of-the-table European Rugby Challenge Cup clash at BT Murrayfield on Friday.

The sides are locked on five points in Pool 3 after bonus-point wins in Round 1, with Edinburgh ahead on points difference, but the Scottish team have won both their previous meetings with Bordeaux in the Challenge Cup, in 2014/15.

Key facts

  • Edinburgh have won all their last 13 home games in the pool stage of the Challenge Cup.
  • Bordeaux are seeking their third successive away victory in the competition for only the second time, the first coming in 2001/02.
  • Edinburgh were the only team to record a 100 per cent success rate in the scrum and line-out in Round 1.

Jalibert denies Edinburgh with late penalty

Bordeaux-Begles centre Semi Radrada offloads the ball despite an Edinburgh Rugby tackle at BT Murrayfield on Friday

A late penalty from Bordeaux-Begles captain Matthieu Jalibert snatched a dramatic draw for the French side in their top-of-the table clash with Edinburgh Rugby at BT Murrayfield in Pool 3 on Friday.

The fly-half struck with two minutes on the clock to crown a fine second-half fightback from Bordeaux, after they had trailed 13-6 at the interval.

Fly-half Jaco van der Walt had nudged the Scottish side 6-0 ahead with penalties in the 15th and 27th minutes, before full-back Blair Kinghorn sprinted clear after a turnover and excellent hands from centres Matt Scott and Mark Bennett in the 34th minute.

Van der Walt converted and pushed Edinburgh 16-6 ahead with his third penalty of the match in the 50th minute.

However, centre Semi Radrada launched the Bordeaux comeback in the 58th minute, when he slipped through a couple of tackles en route to the line, following a great burst by replacement prop Ravai Kovekalou.

Jalibert converted and then denied Edinburgh victory at the death.
