Lyon end Heineken Cup slide with emphatic win over Bulls
Lyon brought an emphatic end to their Heineken Champions Cup drought by crushing the Bulls 31-7 at Matmut Stadium de Gerland.
The French club, sat in mid-table in their domestic Top 14 competition, claimed their only win of the pool stage in style, finishing with a bonus-point victory that lifts them into the top eight.
The Bulls paid the price for a high penalty count and they never got going in frosty conditions, but their two wins earlier in the group phase means they still have a better chance of qualifying for the last 16.
The newcomers from South Africa remain in sixth place with Lyon in seventh.
