As it happened: Bristol Bears 17-3 Leicester Tigers

Bristol Bears earned an eighth Gallagher Premiership win of the season to extend their lead at the top of the table, as they battled past Leicester Tigers at Ashton Gate.

Will Capon and Piers O'Conor touched down in a five-minute blitz before half time, with Ioan Lloyd converting both and adding a second-half penalty.

Re-live all of the action from the hard-fought victory over Leicester Tigers at Ashton Gate, as we dissect the key moments.


17 mins – PEN MISSED – Let off for the Bears, as Bonilla’s long-range effort is pulled wide of the posts.

21 mins – Thomas and Capon link up and the hooker is hauled down inches short, before Bears are penalised at the breakdown.

27 mins – PEN MISSED – Bonilla misses again after Bears pinged for offside in midfield.

28 mins – PEN – 0-3 – Third time lucky for Bonilla who edges Tigers in front.

32 mins – YELLOW – Moroni shown a yellow card for a deliberate knock-on.

34 mins – TRY – 7-3 – Strong lineout drive from the Bears and Capon touches down. Lloyd converts.

38 mins – TRY – 14-3 – Well-worked set-piece play and Morahan sends O’Conor over for a second. Lloyd converts.

HT: Bristol Bears 14-3 Leicester Tigers

49 mins – PEN – 17-3 – Lloyd extends lead with simple penalty from under sticks.

78 mins – HELD UP – Leicester's Cole drives for the line but is held up over the whitewash by Holmes and Harding.

FT: Bristol Bears 17-3 Leicester Tigers
