Australian international winger Adam Ashley-Cooper grabbed a sensational hat-trick to help steer French Top 14 side Bordeaux to a 48-20 mauling of rock-bottom Oyonnax on Saturday.

Bordeaux ran in seven tries in total in front of 22,000 fans at their Stade Chaban-Delmas home as they moved into fourth spot in the table and well-placed for the end of season play-offs.
