Bath Rugby got their Amlin Challenge Cup campaign off to a winning start tonight with an edgy 6-15 win over Bordeaux-Begles.
Bordeaux were quick to try and exert some early pressure on the game, taking play right up to the Bath try-line, but the defence held steady. They made their own forays into Bordeaux territory, and a powerful run from Will Spencer through the midfield led to the first points of the night when the home side were pinged for not rolling away. George Ford stepped up to land the penalty, giving the visitors an early lead. 0-3.
