As it happened: Bristol Bears 28-15 Harlequins

Luke Morahan scored twice in 20 minutes as Bristol Bears made it five Gallagher Premiership wins in a row for the first time in the club's history.

Chris Vui also touched down and Callum Sheedy kicked 13 points to send Bristol back into third place in the table after 13 rounds.

Re-live all of the action from Sunday's Gallagher Premiership victory over Harlequins, as we dissect the key moments.


1 min – TRY – 7-0 – Luatua breaks away down the right and his stunning offload sends Morahan over in the corner for a blistering Bristol start at Ashton Gate.

6 mins – PEN – 7-3 – Penalty conceded at the lineout and Herron makes no mistake to get Quins on the board.

11 mins – PEN – 10-3 – Penalty at scrum time and Sheedy lands the kick to edge hosts into a seven-point lead.

18 mins – TRY – 10-8 – Back come Quins, as Morris races on to Care’s flat pass to cruise over from close range.

21 mins – TRY – 15-8 – Piutau grubbers in behind and after Herron dislodges it from Purdy’s grasp, Morahan collects to touch down for his second.

28 mins – PEN – 18-8 – Sheedy on target with his second penalty after numerous offences from Quins inside the 22.

30 mins – PEN MISSED – Let off for Bristol, as Herron misses his kick at goal.

36 mins – TRY – 25-8 – Clever lineout move finds Capon, who flicks a pass back inside where Vui crashes over. Sheedy converts and it's a great first half for the home side.

38 mins – YELLOW – Henry Purdy sin binned for deliberate knock on.

HT: Bristol Bears 25-8 Harlequins


48 mins – PEN – 28-8 – Sheedy lands his third penalty of the afternoon to extend lead to 20 points.

74 mins – TRY – 28-15 – Late try for Quins, as Ibitoye races over in the corner and Smith adds the conversion.

80 mins – Dombrandt finishes expertly in the corner, but the try is disallowed for forward pass in the build up.

FT: Bristol Bears 28-15 Harlequins
