As it happened: Bristol Bears 56-17 Dragons

Bristol Bears stormed into the last four of the European Challenge Cup with a devastating seven-try demolition of Dragons at Ashton Gate.

The hosts struck through Ben Earl (2), Nathan Hughes, Semi Radradra, Chris Vui, Max Malins and Dan Thomas to storm into the last four of the competition.

Re-live all of the action from Friday night's Challenge Cup quarter final victory over Dragons at Ashton Gate, as we dissect the key moments.


10 mins – PEN – 0-3 - Piutau caught in front of his posts and Dragons win penalty which Davies slots.

13 mins – TRY – 0-10 – Fast start from the Dragons as Davies cross-kick picks out Hewitt, who shakes off Piutau’s tackle to score. Davies converts.

21 mins – TRY – 7-10 – Bears back in the game, as Piutau and Morahan combine to break the line and Hughes touches down in the corner. Sheedy converts from out wide.

24 mins – TRY – 14-10 – Beautiful set piece from the Bears, as Radradra scythes through and links with Piutau, whose offload sends Earl over. Sheedy converts.

26 mins – TRY – 21-10 – Sensational from Radradra, whose back of the hand offload finds Earl, and the flanker side steps the full back to score. Sheedy converts.

31 mins – PEN – 24-10 – Sheedy lands simple penalty to extend lead.

36 mins – PEN MISSED – Long range penalty from Sheedy drifts wide of the posts

HT: Bristol Bears 24-10 Dragons

43 mins – TRY – 31-10 - Sheedy’s half break and offload finds Radradra and there’s just no stopping the Fijian from 60 metres.

51 mins – TRY – 31-17 – Rhodri Williams snipes and steps under the posts to score. Davies converts.

54 mins – PEN – 34-17 – Penalty at scrum time and Sheedy knocks over to extend the lead.

69 mins – PEN – 37-17 – Huge shove from the pack at scrum time and Sheedy kicks his third penalty.

73 mins – TRY – 44-17 – Vui spins out of contact to score Bears' fifth try. Sheedy converts.

75 mins – TRY – 51-17 – Sensational try, as Earl and Morahan combine on the right and Malins rounds off length of the field try.

77 mins – TRY – 56-17 – Dan Thomas finishes the job after Malins' break and Randall's quickly taken tap penalty.

FT: Bristol Bears 56-17 Dragons
