  2. Hogg in the limelight

    Exeter Chiefs v Glasgow Warriors (Saturday, 15:15)

    Scotland international Stuart Hogg will be the centre (or should that be full-back?) of attention tomorrow as he plays in the European Champions Cup for Exeter Chiefs at home to Glasgow Warriors, who he left in the summer.

    Glasgow head coach Dave Rennie has promised his former charge a tough time.

    “We love Hoggy," he said." I know the boys have been ribbing him, Ryan Wilson has been sending him the odd text telling him he’s going to get him in the game – and no doubt he’ll try to. All in good fun.

    “It’s a bit ironic we draw them in Europe, but he’s a good man. We’ll enjoy catching up for a beer after the game.

    “He’ll certainly be highly motivated. We’re also aware of a couple of frailties that he has so hopefully we can put a bit of pressure on him."

  3. Edinburgh need to sting Wasps

    FT: Edinburgh 16-16 Bordeaux Begles

    Next up for Edinburgh is a home game against Wasps on 6 December in the first of a double header against the English side.

    You feel Richard Cockerill's side will have to win that one as Bordeaux will be favourites to take all the points in their French derby away to Agen on the same day.

  4. 'We should have won game' - Cockerill

    FT: Edinburgh 16-16 Bordeaux Begles

    Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill believes it was "an opportunity missed" to put his side in a commanding position in Pool 3.

    "Even though it is the second tier of Europe, they are a good side," he says of Bordeaux. "I am disappointed we did not win the game and we had enough of the game to do that.

    "We need to learn to make the right decisions at the right time and good sides always get the chance to score and they did that.

    "It is small margins, we were as good as they were and should have won the game. We've got to be smarter and learn our lessons quickly."

  5. Cockerill not crowing

    FT: Edinburgh 16-16 Bordeaux Begles

    We are still waiting to hear from the Edinburgh head coach.

    Maybe Richard Cockerill has a few choice words for his players before meeting the media.

  6. Tale of two tries, two halves

  7. Wasps can narrow gap

    FT: Edinburgh 16-16 Bordeaux Begles

    The next pool game takes place tomorrow, when Wasps host Agen and you would expect the English side to get off the mark against the Top 14 strugglers who lost at home to Edinburgh last week.

  8. Full-time - Edinburgh 16-16 Bordeaux Begles

    Edinburgh will wonder how this one ran away from them. From 16-6 ahead, they have to settle for two points.

    Blair Kinghorn's first-half try gave the home side the advantage, but they failed to build on that and, in a thrilling finish, with play flowing from end to end, Semi Radrada went over the line to reduce the arrears and Matthieu Jalibert's late penalty levelled the scores.

    Two points each, but Bordeaux will be the happier side.

  9. Penalty - Edinburgh 16-16 Bordeaux Begles

    Matthieu Jalibert

    Bordeaux have a penalty and, having failed to take advantage, Matthieu Jalibert elects to try to level the scores from distance.

    The fly-half doesn't connect properly but does enough to put the ball between the posts and ties the score with two minutes to go.
