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.
