As it happened: Bordeaux-Begles 36-17 Bristol Bears

Bristol Bears were knocked out of the Champions Cup after Bordeaux-Begles ran in three tries to come from behind and book a quarter final spot against Racing 92.

The Bears led for most of the first 40 after Henry Purdy crossed but Mathieu Jalibert scored 15 points from the tee to Callum Sheedy's nine to go ahead.

Bristol's hopes faded when France star Jalibert converted his own try. Sheedy scored another penalty but Joseph Dweba and Nans Ducuing tries sealed victory.

Re-live all of the action from Sunday's Heineken Champions Cup Round of 16 defeat to Bordeaux-Begles, as we dissect the key moments.


6 mins – TRY – 0-5 – Deadly first-phase move and Piutau sends Purdy over out wide.

10 mins – PEN – 3-5 – Dan Thomas offside and Jalibert nails the penalty.

14 mins – PEN – 3-8 – Sheedy lands long-range penalty to extend Bears lead.

16 mins – PEN – 6-8 – Jalibert on target again after Byrne penalised.

18 mins – PEN – 6-11 – Hosts pinged for not retreating and Sheedy extends the lead.

22 mins – PEN – 9-11 – Jalibert reduces deficit with long-range effort.

27 mins – PEN – 9-14 – Sheedy with his third successful penalty to restore five-point lead.

34 mins – PEN – 12-14 – Sinckler penalised at the breakdown and Jalibert knocks over the kick.

39 mins – PEN – 15-14 – Another penalty and Jalibert edges Bordeaux in front at the break.

HT: Bordeaux-Begles 15-14 Bristol Bears

45 mins – TRY – 22-14 – Jalibert steps towards the line and TMO awards the try. Conversion added.

52 mins – TRY DISALLOWED – Purdy looks to have scored but TMO rules it has been knocked on in process of grounding.

56 mins – PEN – 22-17 – Sheedy narrows the deficit to five points.

60 mins – PEN MISSED – 22-17 – Penalty conceded at the maul but Jalibert misses chance to restore the eight-point advantage.

68 mins – YELLOW – Douglas sin-binned for repeat infringements.

71 mins – TRY – 29-17 – Dweba powers over for Bordeaux’s second. Jalibert converts.

78 mins – YELLOW – Cazeaux yellow carded for shoulder charge into ruck.

80 mins – TRY – 36-17 – Ducuing intercepts and races clear to seal victory for Bordeaux.
