According to the sandisk (Australia) website...

Class 10 means the card is capable of a sustained 10MB/s write speed.  The other speed quoted on cards is the burst write speed (E.g. 45MB/s).

All their Ultra and Extreme cards are listed as Class 10 but they have versions supporting 30, 45, 60 and 95MB/s write speeds

If you are regularly using a sequential shooting (and assuming it is not a problem with the camera itself) perhaps you need to look at using a 60 or even 95 rated card.

I occasionally use sequential shooting when at rugby matches, I have so far not had a problem when using sandisk extreme 45MB/s cards but I may be shooting shorter bursts than you and just not hitting buffering problems - I typically only use sequential shooting for line outs and conversions/penalty kicks where I want try and track the balls progress.
