As it happened: Bristol Bears 13-10 Worcester Warriors

Luke Morahan's try and eight points from the boot of Callum Sheedy fired Bristol Bears to a narrow victory over Worcester Warriors at Ashton Gate.

The victory, Bristol's third in a row in the Gallagher Premiership, takes Pat Lam's side into third at the season's halfway stage.

Re-live all of the action, as we dissect the key moments from Sunday's win.


2 mins – Bedlow powers towards the line but is held up over the whitewash by a scrambling Worcester defence.

4 mins – Three penalties in a row for Bristol but the lineout is lost and the pressure is relieved by Weir.

17 mins – Worcester break down the left but Shillcock’s offload evades the supporting Hill.

21 mins – PEN – 3-0 - High tackle on Nathan Hughes in the midfield and Sheedy steps up to land long-range kick and open the scoring.

36 mins – TRY – 10-0 – After so much pressure, it finally arrives. Randall taps and goes from a penalty and links with Piutau, who hits Morahan on a delightful switch to score under posts. Sheedy converts.

HT: Bristol Bears 10-0 Worcester Warriors

Randall breaks clear in build up to Morahan's try (JMPUK).

43 mins – TRY – 10-7 – Worcester back in it. Counter-attack catches Bristol out and van Breda feeds David, who runs it in from 40 metres. Weir converts.

58 mins – YELLOW – Cornell du Preez yellow carded for high tackle on Sheedy.

66 mins – PEN – 10-10 – It's all square, as Van Breda is on target from a long range penalty to level the scores.

68 mins – YELLOW – Andrew Kitchener sin binned shortly after coming on, following dazzling break from Piutau.

69 mins – PEN – 13-10 – Sheedy lands subsequent penalty to edge Bristol back in front with 11 minutes left to play.

80 mins – Bristol piling on the pressure late on, but Chris Vui spills the ball as he drives towards the line.
