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.
- 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.
Back at home and raring to go. 👍🇫🇯😃

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.
Flashes of brilliance from #15 tonight! ⚡️ Your MOTM, @Blair_Kinghorn. 👏 pic.twitter.com/bbAD1SRA2l
