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.
