As it happened: Bristol Bears 21-26 Wasps

Nizaam Carr's 79th-minute try saw Wasps snatch a dramatic victory at Ashton Gate on Friday night. 

Callum Sheedy’s penalty just one minute earlier looked to have snatched it for Pat Lam’s men in front of more than 23,000 supporters, but Carr’s devastating break down the touchline sealed a bonus-point win for the visitors, leaving Bristol with no time to respond.

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


13 mins – PEN – 3-0 – Sheedy opens the scoring with a well-struck penalty.

16 mins – PEN MISSED – Umaga slices his kick after high tackle from Woolmore.

21 mins – PEN MISSED – 3-0 – Umaga misses again after Bristol are penalised at the lineout.

34 mins – Unbelievable tackle from Piutau on Kibirige prevents a certain Wasps try just before half time. Referee Luke Pearce goes to the TMO but awards a lineout to Bristol.

HT: Bristol Bears 3-0 Wasps 


43 mins – TRY – 3-7 – Umaga spots the gap and races through it to touch down. Conversion added.

46 mins – PEN – 6-7 – Sheedy lands long range penalty to closer the gap to one point.

55 mins – TRY – 13-7 – Bears pressure pays off as Piutau powers over from close range flat pass from Randall. Sheedy converts.

57 mins – TRY – 13-14 – Fekitoa bursts clear to round last man and score a fine solo try. Umaga converts.

64 mins – TRY – 13-19 – Minozzi dives over in the corner after break from Kibirige to edge Wasps further ahead.

69 mins – TRY – 18-19 – Bears hit back as Harry Thacker touches down from a driving maul. Conversion hits the post.

78 mins – PEN – 21-19 – Sheedy lands penalty to give Bristol a narrow lead heading into final minute.

80 mins – TRY – 21-26 – Dramatic finish as Nizaam Carr powers down the touchline to score in the corner.
