Friday’s Pool 4 Challenge Cup match at the Stade Andre Moga, Bègles, between Bordeaux Begles of the French Top 14 tournament, and London Welsh from the Aviva Premiership, would appear to be the most predictable result of the weekend’s contests, between teams from the major European leagues.

On their own ground, Bordeaux have produced some of the most exhilarating rugby anywhere in Europe this season, while hapless London Welsh have lost every one of their fixtures, domestically and in European competition. While Edinburgh head the qualifying Pool with a 100% winning record after four games, Bordeaux have managed to just about stay in touch with the table toppers, thanks to their ability to secure bonus points, while the Scots have yet to register a single try-scoring point. The gap after four rounds of competition is five points.

With the Scots travelling to face Lyon on Saturday, a bonus point win for Bordeaux, which is more than likely to be the outcome of Friday evening’s encounter with the Exiles, could see them draw level at the head of the Pool, setting up a winner take all match at Murrayfield the following weekend. Whether Bordeaux really want a European Rugby Challenge Cup p place must be debateable, as they continue their push for a play-off place in the Top 14 tournament.
