As it happened: London Irish 7-36 Bristol Bears

Bristol Bears booked their place in the Gallagher Premiership play offs for the first time since 2007 on a dramatic final afternoon at The Stoop.

A bonus-point 7-36 victory ensured a top-four finish for Pat Lam’s men, thanks to scores from Semi Radradra, Ben Earl touched, Harry Thacker, Will Capon and a penalty try.

Re-live all of the action from Sunday's round 22 Gallagher Premiership victory over London Irish at The Stoop, as we dissect the key moments.


13 mins – TRY – 0-7 – Superb break from O’Conor and the wing feeds Radradra to go in for the first try.

30 mins – TRY – 0-14 – Strong drive from the Bears and Earl touches down for his 11th try of the season.

35 mins – CHANCE – Malins collects Piutau's pass to cross the whitewash, but spills ball with line at his mercy.

36 mins – PEN – 0-17 – Malins lands a simple penalty to extend the Bears lead further.

HT: London Irish 0-17 Bristol Bears

62 mins – TRY – 7-17 – Irish hit back, as Ollie Hassell-Collins goes over for a fine solo score. Jackson converts.

67 mins – TRY – 7-24 – Thacker over from driving lineout for try number three. Malins converts.

76 mins – TRY – 7-29 – That's the bonus point! Penalty try at the driving lineout and the Bears have what they need.

79 mins – TRY – 7-36 – That's a wrap! Will Capon the man to touch down from the latest driving lineout for number five.

FT: London Irish 7-36 Bristol Bears
