Jaden Hendrikse and Marnus Potgieter each scored a pair of tries as the Sharks booked their place in the Heineken Champions Cup round of 16 with a 32-3 win over Bordeaux. It was a third win out of three for the South African franchise in their debut campaign of European rugby with Bordeaux not helping themselves after picking up four yellow cards.


Lionel Cronje kicked an early penalty for the Sharks before Hendrikse went over for the opening try from close range. The hosts were dominant up front and Hendrikse again went over from a driving maul before second row Gerbrandt Grobler powered over.

Maxime Lucu kicked the only Bordeaux points of the game shortly after the break but, with the visitors down to 13 men, wing Potgieter claimed the Sharks’ bonus-point try. Flanker Siya Kolisi was instrumental in that try and was again the architect of the fifth try as Potgieter strolled in out wide.
