As it happened: Wasps 47-24 Bristol Bears

Bristol Bears fell to a dominant Wasps outfit at the semi-final stage of the Gallagher Premiership on Saturday.

Pat Lam's men trailed by 18 points at the break and, despite three second half scores, were overpowered at the Ricoh Arena.

Re-live all of the action from Saturday's Gallagher Premiership play-off semi-final clash with Wasps, as we dissect the key moments.


9 mins – TRY – 7-0 – Fekitoa latches on to Robson’s chip ahead to score opening try. Gopperth converts.

14 mins – PEN – 10-0 – Gopperth lands long-range penalty after Woolmore is penalised at breakdown.

19 mins – PEN – 13-0 – Penalty at scrum time and Gopperth extends the Wasps lead.

23 mins – TRY – 13-5 – Hughes goes quickly at the penalty and offloads to Uren and the scrum-half floated pass sends Morahan over.

29 mins – PEN – 16-5 – Another scrum penalty to Wasps and Gopperth is on target again.

35 mins – TRY – 23-5 – Jack Willis burrows over from close range for Wasps' second try. Gopperth converts.

HT: Wasps 23-5 Bristol Bears

47 mins – CHANCE – Sheedy makes a half break and feeds Radradra and when ball comes back, Sheedy goose steps over line but is held up by Jack Willis.

49 mins – TRY – 23-12 – Bears get the drive on at the maul and Thacker powers over for the visitors' second score. Sheedy converts.

53 mins – PEN – 26-12 – Gopperth lands his fourth penalty of the afternoon for Wasps.

57 mins – PEN MISSED – 26-12 – Penalty at the breakdown but Gopperth hits post and it's a let-off for the Bears.

61 mins – TRY – 33-12 – Robson goes over controversially from quick tap penalty. Gopperth converts.

64 mins – TRY – 40-12 – Kibirige races away to touch down and that's a wrap for the semi-final. Gopperth converts.

67 mins – TRY – 47-12 - Minozzi grabs Wasps' fifth try after neat work from Josh Bassett. Gopperth converts.

74 mins – TRY – 47-19 – Harry Randall goes over after neat handling from O’Conor and Earl. Sheedy converts.

77 mins – TRY - 47-24 – Bedlow's delicious offload finds Malins, whose chip and chase is beautifully finished.
