Tale­bula sees yel­low as UBB go down

Fiji Sun - - Sport -

For­mer Voda­fone Fi­jian 7s play­maker Me­tuisela Tale­bula copped a yel­low card for a de­lib­er­ate knock on close to his try line as his Bordeaux-Be­gles went down 33-27 to Cas­tres at Stade Pierre An­toine yes­ter­day. The home side came into this match on the back of an im­pres­sive vic­tory over Northamp­ton Saints in the Euro­pean Cham­pi­ons Cup last week­end and they raced into a 13-0 lead in this clash, and even led 20-7 mid­way through the open­ing half, be­fore the vis­i­tors fought back to trail 23-17 at half-time. Both sides scored three tries apiece but it was the boot of Cas­tres fly-half Ben­jamin Ur­dapil­leta which se­cured the win for the hosts as he fin­ished with an 18-point haul cour­tesy of four penal­ties and three con­ver­sions.
