VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: Union Bordeaux Begles v Castres Olympique

A back and forth kicking duel at the Stade Chaban-Delmas as Bordeaux claim an important 20-16 victory over Castres which sees them move ahead of their opponents on the TOP14 log.



 
Matthieu Jalibert slotted two early penalties to get the score rolling for Bordeaux before misses from both Rory Kockett and Jalibert saw the score remain 6-0 before 20 minutes were up. Just before the end of the first quarter, Jalibert made it 9-0. Ben Urdapilleta got Castres on the board in the 22nd minute before Combezou set up and scored the first try of the game linking up brilliantly in a flowing counter attack that saw Nakosi sprinting down the touchline and Rory Kockett providing the final pass to the centre to score. Pablo Uberti responded for Bordeaux after gathering a loose pass by Jalibert to stroll in and put Bordeaux up 14-10 at halftime. 
 
All the scores in the second half came via the tee with Urdapilleta and Jalibert knocking over two. Castres had a chance to steal the game at the end but young French International Alexandre Roumat spoiled their chances with a stolen lineout inside his own 22 with Guido Petti doing similar not too long before. Full Time 20-16.
