As it happened: Newcastle Falcons 12-19 Bristol Bears

Bristol Bears completed a ninth Gallagher Premiership victory of the season with a 19-12 triumph over Newcastle Falcons at Kingston Park on the final day of the 2018/19 regular campaign.

Charles Piutau, Piers O'Conor and Jack Lam all crossed for Pat Lam's men, who ended with the highest points tally from a promoted side since 2007.

Relive all of the action as we dissect the key moments, as they happened, from Saturday's clash.


Piutau scores on ten minutes.
O'Conor scores Bristol's second.
Jack Lam powers over.

10 minsTRY0-5 – Patient play from the Bristol pack who edge the visitors close to the whitewash, before Sheedy and Siale Piutau combine to send Charles Piutau over to score.

15 mins – Piutau steps inside and Bristol go close again, but Falcons steal and clear their lines.

30 mins – Sheedy’s chip ahead almost falls into the clutches of Piers O’Conor, but bounce goes against the centre.

32 mins – Vui’s inside pass sends Charles Piutau clear, but the full back’s pass evades Luatua, with Sheedy free on the inside.

38 mins – Electrifying break from Adam Radwan, who is hauled down by Piutau inside the Bristol 22. Thomas wins the turnover and Bristol clear.
