Bordeaux and Clermont played out to a 16 all draw in Saturday's opening TOP14 clash at the Stade Chaban-Delmas.
A real arm-wrestle between the two sides saw just two tries being scored with Bordeaux hooker Maxime Lamothe dotting down in the 14th minute.
It did not long for Clermont to respond with Tim Nanai-Williams breaking through a gap and offloading to Raka who put Damian Penaud away.
As the winger got up from scoring, he ran into Bordeaux flyhalf Matthieu Jalibert with the pair embracing after dotting down.
Jalibert and Morgan Parra traded shots at goal before Jalibert gave his side a three-point lead into the break.
