But London Irish will want to go out with a victory over Bordeaux-Begles and make it four from four from their French tests having already done the double over Mont de Marsan.
The Exiles won 43-16 at Bordeiax in Round 1 with wing Topsy Ojo getting one of the six tries that sunk Raphael Ibanez's club.
- London Irish have won 11 of their last 12 encounters with French clubs in this competition, only losing to Bourgoin in the 2009 quarter-finals.
- Bordeaux have lost their last seven games in the Amlin Challenge Cup, however have picked up losing bonus points in three of these.
- Bordeaux are yet to win a game this season. They have never failed to win a game in their previous nine seasons of European action (Amlin Challenge Cup and Heineken Cup).
