As it happened: Bristol Bears 29-17 Newcastle Falcons

Bristol Bears ran in four tries to inflict a first league defeat of the season on Newcastle Falcons and make it four successive Gallagher Premiership wins for Pat Lam's men.

Siva Naulago, Charles Piutau, Nathan Hughes and George Kloska all touched down at Ashton Gate to seal a bonus-point win on New Year's Day.

Re-live all of the action from the Gallagher Premiership victory over Newcastle Falcons, as we dissect the key moments.


1 min – TRY - 7-0 – Sheedy intercepts and races away before handing on to Naulago for the opening score. Sheedy converts.

13 mins – TRY - 7-5 – Wacokecoke breaks a tackle to stretch over and level the scores for Newcastle.

18 mins – TRY – 14-5 – Good pressure applied by the Bears maul and when it’s moved wide, Piutau scoops up loose ball to power over. Sheedy converts.

31 mins – YELLOW – Attwood sin-binned for playing the man in the air at the lineout.

32 mins – HELD UP – Blamire drives for the line but Kloska gets underneath the ball to prevent the try.

40 mins – TRY – 14-10 – Wilson muscles his way to the line from close range as Falcons capitalise on one-man advantage.

HT: Bristol Bears 14-10 Newcastle Falcons

44 mins – TRY – 21-10 – Intricate lineout play from the Bears releases Hughes on the charge and the number eight barges through two tackles to score. Sheedy converts.

48 mins – HELD UP – Orlando looks to have scored but a heroic tackle from O’Conor holds him up over the line.

54 mins – TRY – 21-17 - Number eight Philip van der Walt grabs a third for the Falcons from close range. Flood converts.

59 mins – TRY – 26-17 – Bonus-point try for the Bears, as Kloska touches down from powerful driving maul.

63 mins – RULED OUT – Try of the season contender chalked off for a forward pass in the build-up.

79 mins – PEN – 29-17 – Game, set and match for the Bears, as Sheedy lands simple penalty after scrum dominance.

FT: Bristol Bears 29-17 Newcastle Falcons
