A late interception try by winger Stephane Ahmed helped Stade Francais edge a 30-26 victory at Bordeaux-Begles in the French Top 14 on Saturday.

Ahmed read an attempted mispass by Ben Tapuai to perfection to cross for a 75th minute try that Joris Segonds converted to silence the 28,000-plus crowd at Stade Chaban-Delmas.

The home side led 21-20 at half-time thanks to tries from Tevita Tatafu and in-form full-back Romain Buros, Mateo Garcia hitting three penalties and a conversion.

Stade got on the scoreboard with tries from Sergo Abramishvili and Jeremy Ward, Segonds converting both and also hitting two penalties.

Bordeaux-Begles stretched their lead when Romain Latterrade went over for a third try in the 56th minute, following a third Segonds penalty.

But that was the hosts' final word as Ahmed snaffled Tapuai's pass to dot down under the posts, Segonds putting the icing on the cake to break Bordeaux-Begles' five-match winning streak in the league.
