Charlie Sharples at the double as Bordeaux Begles are beaten
RUGGED Gloucester stretched their unbeaten streak to seven with a hard-fought victory over Bordeaux at Kingsholm last night.
The Cherry and Whites made heavy weather of the second half against their French Top 14 opponents, but held firm for another victory.
Charlie Sharples' brace and scores for Will James and Billy Twelvetrees ensured Gloucester secured the try bonus-point by half-time.
But the stubborn Frenchmen hit back after the break, claiming the second-half's only score through flanker Gauthier Gibouin.
