'A big win for the club' - Lam

Pat Lam declared it ‘a big win for the club’ after the Bears overcame Exeter Chiefs in a bruising encounter at Sandy Park to climb to the top of the Gallagher Premiership.

'The right mindset'

Tries from Harry Randall and Semi Radradra either side of half time fired the Bears to a fifth successive league win and the Director of Rugby praised his side’s mindset and physicality.

"I'm proud. You can't come to this place and win against these guys unless you bring the right mindset, the right physicality levels and do it as a team and today was phenomenal,” he said.

"I know a lot of people think that the Bears way is just throwing the ball around, but this pitch is pretty heavy and we ground it out.

"We needed to be physical and we certainly dominated them right through the game.

“It’s a big win for the club. There is a long way to go. It’s more the way we are playing rugby at the moment. People admire all the fancy stuff, but statistically, we have the best maul. No one has scored a maul try against us. They came hard, but we hit them hard and that’s what we planned to do.”
