Exeter Chiefs are all but out of the European Champions Cup after defeat in Bordeaux this afternoon.

They lost 34 - 27, and despite earning a bonus point, they'll need to win by a big margin next week to qualify for the quarter finals.

A bonus point win would have seen Exeter move up to second in the pool to set up the decider against Ospreys next Sunday. But after taking an early penalty lead through Will Hooley, Bordeaux hit back with two tries against an under strength Chiefs.

From then it was end to end action, and the teams went in 20 - 20 at half time. But in the end, Bordeaux overpowered Exeter, and they now have a mammoth task to get out of the group stages.
