As it happened: Bristol Bears 22-25 Exeter Chiefs

Bristol Bears slipped to their first defeat since January in all competitions as Exeter Chiefs came from behind to secure a thrilling victory.

The home side looked to have taken the spoils when Ioan Lloyd raced in late on, but Billy Keast rumbled over in the dying stages to end Bristol's winning streak.

Re-live all of the action from Tuesday's Gallagher Premiership defeat to Exeter Chiefs at Ashton Gate, as we dissect the key moments.


15 mins – TRY – 0-7 – Chiefs break from a left-hand scrum and Hidalgo-Clyne’s flat pass sends Dollman through the hole to score. Steenson converts.

23 mins – TRY – 0-12 – Hildalgo-Clyne touches down in the corner after Chiefs break down the blindside through Woodburn.

28 mins – Armand breaks clear and finds Woodburn but Sheedy’s tackle prevents the try and resulting scrum is won against the head by the Bears.

35 mins – PEN – 0-15 – More Chiefs pressure and Steenson knocks over simple penalty to extend the lead to 15 points.

38 mins – PEN – 3-15 – Better from the Bears, who break the line through Luatua and Sinckler’s neat combination. Penalty awarded and Sheedy is on target.

39 mins – Piutau goes clean through but Radradra’s pass is deemed forward to bring the first half to a conclusion.

HT: Bristol Bears 3-15 Exeter Chiefs

44 mins – PEN – 3-15 – Strong scrummage from the Bristol pack against the head but Sheedy’s penalty strikes the post.

49 mins – TRY - 10-15 - Morahan breaks down the outside, Byrne makes good ground and Radradra flicks pass on to O’Conor to score Bears' first try of the night. Sheedy converts.

53 mins – TRY – 17-15 – A strong drive at the maul and Bears play off penalty advantage. Ball goes through the hands and Piutau sends Morahan in at the corner. Sheedy converts.

64 mins – PEN – 17-18 – Penalty conceded in front of the posts and Steenson lands it to edge Chiefs back in front.

70 mins – TRY – 22-18 – What a turnaround. replacement Ioan Lloyd drifts on an outside arc and outstrips Chiefs defence to touch down. 

79 mins - TRY - 22-25 - That should be the win for the Chiefs, as Keast drives over from close range and Steenson converts.

FT: Bristol Bears 22-25 Exeter Chiefs
