As it happened: Bristol Bears 25-27 Worcester Warriors

Bristol Bears fell short of a third Gallagher Premiership win on the bounce as Worcester Warriors took the spoils at Ashton Gate on Saturday.

A penalty try kicked off the scoring for Bristol before Morahan crossed on 15 minutes, but scores from Ted Hill, Ben Te'o and Josh Adams cancelled them out as Warriors led at the break.

Duncan Weir's penalty extended the lead further before Callum Sheedy crossed to bring Bristol within striking distance. 

But Ian Madigan's late penalty drifted agonisingly wide, as Worcester held on for the win.

Relive all of the action as we dissect the key moments, as they happened, from Saturday's clash.


Parry celebrates penalty try.
Morahan dives over.
Adams scores in the corner.
Sheedy touches down.

31 minsPEN18-14 – Another brilliant kick from Sheedy, who extends the Bristol lead to four points from all of 45 metres.

36 minsPEN18-24 – Weir on target from all of 45 metres to extend Worcester lead shortly before half-time.

46 minsPEN18-27 – First blood to Worcester after the interval as Weir slots over another penalty after Bristol are penalised at the driving lineout.

55 minsCHANCE - Weir slices through a hole in the defence and stretches out to score Warriors’ fourth try – but he knocks the ball on in the process.
