Bordeaux eased their relegation fears with a comfortable 31-10 victory over Lyon at the Stade Andre Moga on Friday night.
Blindside flanker Justin Purll led the way with two tries either side of the interval, with wingers Blair Connor and Rafael Carballo wrapping up a bonus point with scores of their own.
Former Northampton fullback Bruce Reihana converted all four tries and added a penalty to help his side to within a point of Stade Francais in sixth.
Lyon, who bit back through Alipate Fatafehi's 69th minute try, remain in the relegation mire, one point above bottom-placed Bayonne.
