    Bordeaux growing into it with exciting youngsters
    Darly Domvo, Baptiste Serin, Romain Lonca, Sebastien Taofefinua (brother of Romain) Marco Tauleigne all in their early 20s and staff not afraid to use them. I also like Yann Lesgourgues one of the best SH around

    Been saying that for quite some time now (since saw him in Biarritz some four/five years ago) and am very surprised that he has not had more game time behind that fat SA first and now a guy of his own age......Serin!

    Do you think he knew losing bonus point was needed? Was watching Exeter game so only getting score updates from France.

    If Exeter get out of this group as winners then that's one hell of an achievement!
    With the injury list they've got, and their poor showing the other week.

    Mental!

    According to BT Sport commentary and the celebrations of Exeter in their changing room. They are through!

    All four teams in the pool ended up on 16 points!

    Edit:
    Sorry. Missed the fact that Clermont missed out on their losing bonus point. Not all teams on 16, only Clermont on 15

    I didn't even imagine Exeter getting through was a possibility, quite unbelievable.

    Clermont finished on 15 points and bottom of the group but would have topped the group if Morgan Parra had taken a gimmie penalty between the posts with 90 seconds go, bringing them within 7 points of Bordeaux and securing the losing bonus point.
    He tap kicked and the resulting play was held up over the try line. I'm stunned.

    Wasps vs Exeter. Well played yesterday and good luck in the next round.

    Think that makes is 4 English clubs in the Challenge Cup quarters and 5 in the Champions.
    Not a bad haul.

    Clermont screwed things up, a louzy penalty and they would go through

    Exeter play a really refreshing brand of rugby, great to see them through.
