As it happened: Newcastle Falcons 17-34 Bristol Bears

Bristol Bears weathered an early storm to power to a five-try bonus-point victory over Newcastle Falcons at Kingston Park.

Max Malins bagged a brace and Ben Earl, Jake Heenan and Luke Morahan were also on the scoresheet as Pat Lam's men restored their 12-point lead at the top of the Gallagher Premiership. 

Re-live all of the action from Kingston Park, as we dissect the key moments.


12 mins – YELLOW – Brocklebank sent to the sin bin for a late shoulder charge on Sheedy.

16 mins – TRY – 7-0 – Young intercepts and races in for the opening score. Flood converts.

24 mins – PEN – 10-0 – Flood knocks over simple penalty and Falcons lead by 10.

28 mins – TRY – 10-7 - Sensational counterattack from the Bears, who go over courtesy of Heenan after superb build-up work from Earl. Lloyd converts.

31 mins – TRY – 10-14 – Slick handling from the Bears and when it reaches Malins, the full back sells an outrageous dummy to touch down. Lloyd converts.

39 mins – TRY – 10-19 – On the stroke of half time. Morahan ducks and weaves through the defence to race in and score the Bears’ third.

HT: Newcastle Falcons 10-19 Bristol Bears

52 mins – PEN – 10-22 – Lloyd lands penalty to extend the lead to 12 points.

56 mins – TRY – 10-27 – Slick lineout play from the Bears and Earl cuts back on the angle to power over.

65 mins – NO TRY – Piutau breaks clear but Malins fumbles the pass. Play continues and Uren feeds Adeolokun to score, but TMO rules it out.

72 mins – TRY – 10-34 – Connon chips ahead but it sits up beautifully for Malins to cruise in for his second. Lloyd converts.

79 mins – TRY – 17-34 – Cooper powers over from close range and Flood converts.

FT: Newcastle Falcons 17-34 Bristol Bears
