As it happened: Exeter Chiefs 7-20 Bristol Bears

Bristol Bears beat local rivals Exeter Chiefs in a bruising encounter to go top of the Gallagher Premiership.

Harry Randall was mauled over early on before Jonny Hill went over from close range to level late in the first half.

Callum Sheedy's penalty put Bristol ahead soon after the restart and Semi Radradra got the decisive score 10 minutes from time before a second Sheedy penalty late on.

Re-live all of the action from the round six Gallagher Premiership victory over Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park, as we dissect the key moments.


7 mins – Randall breaks clear from quick-tap penalty and kicks ahead for Earl, but TMO adjudges Hidalgo-Clyne to have won the race to the ball in-goal.

16 mins – TRY – 0-7 – Well-worked lineout drive from the Bears, as Luatua shifts on to Hughes and it’s Harry Randall who bundles over. Sheedy converts.

19 mins – Chiefs drive at the lineout but the Bears defence holds firm and Earl latches on to the ball to win the penalty.

29 mins – YELLOW – Woolmore and Williams sent to the sin bin as referee Karl Dickson looses patience at scrum time.

35 mins – TRY – 7-7 – Chiefs hit back as Jonny Hill crashes over from close range and Simmonds converts to level the scores.

HT: Exeter Chiefs 7-7 Bristol Bears

44 mins – PEN – 7-10 – Radradra's offload finds Sinckler and when he’s hauled down by Simmonds, the penalty is awarded and Sheedy knocks over.

70 mins – TRY – 7-17 – Pressure in the Exeter 22 from the Bears and O’Conor’s flat pass sends Radradra over for a huge try. Sheedy converts.

78 mins – PEN – 7-20 – That all but seals it. Sheedy steps up to land his second penalty of the afternoon and complete a memorable win for the Bears.
