Bordeaux s fullback Bruce Reihana v brive

Looking for a gap: Bruce Reihana

A try from Tongan replacement wing Vungakoto Lilo four minutes after the final hooter handed Bordeaux-Bègles a crucial 16-12 Top 14 win over Brive on Friday.

The result sees UBB climb up to provisional tenth place in the standings, just one point behind their visitors but with a game in hand.

The scores were locked at 6-6 at half-time after home fly-half Gerard Fraser traded penalties with Brive scrum-half Mathieu Belie.

The pattern continued in the second period until Julien Caminati put the visitors ahead with just five minutes left to play with a well struck penalty.

But Bordeaux would have the last laugh as Lilo finally broke through the Brive defence to snatch victory in a nail-biting finish.
