Clermont 28-37 Bordeaux: Morgan Parra quick tap costs Clermont as they crash out of Europe

Clermont Auvergne are out of Europe after Bordeaux-Begles won 38-27 at Stade Marcel-Michelin.

Heading into the final play of the game, all Clermont needed was a losing bonus point to guarantee a spot in the final eight of the Champions Cup but Morgan Parra turned down a likely three points to tap a penalty which came to nought.
