Bristol were knocked out of the Champions Cup after being overpowered by Bordeaux-Begles, who will host Racing 92 in the quarter-finals.

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.

The result means Exeter are the only Premiership side currently through to the quarter-finals, which will take place on the weekend of 9-11 April, but Sale could still join them if they beat Scarlets later on Sunday.
