Lyon, who had taken the lead after trailing by 23 points, finally lost on a drop goal 5 minutes after the siren.


Struggling in the Top 14, Lyon started their Heineken Champions Cup campaign with a 36-34 defeat at Bristol on Saturday night, but still left with an offensive bonus point and a defensive bonus.

With several key players rested, starting with second-row Romain Taofifenua and scrum-half Baptiste Couilloud, Lyon thought they had made the perfect move by taking the lead in the 77th minute after a try from centre Alfred Parisien.

But the Bristol side, who led by 23 points before letting LOU come back, eventually prevailed thanks to a drop goal from fly-half Callum Sheedy after the siren.

With a fifth defeat in their last six matches, Lyon remain in doubt ahead of the visit of South African franchise Bulls next week.
