As it happened: Worcester Warriors 13-36 Bristol Bears

Bristol Bears scored 26 unanswered second half points to come from behind and beat Worcester Warriors at Sixways on Friday night.

Ed Holmes' early try put the Bears ahead but Melani Nanai's converted score and two Duncan Weir penalties gave the Warriors a 13-10 lead at the break.

The Bears dominated the second period as Dan Thomas put them back in front and Siale Piutau also crossed.

Replacements Andy Uren and Ben Earl got in on the act as Pat Lam's side moved up to second in the Premiership table.

Re-live all of the action from Friday's Gallagher Premiership victory over Worcester, as we dissect the key moments.


7 mins – TRY – 0-7 – Siale Piutau with the break and offload inside to Randall before Ed Holmes powers over from close range. Sheedy converts.

11 mins – PEN MISSED – Byrne penalised for high tackle, but Weir’s kick is wide.

13 mins – CHANCE – Sinckler and Morahan pull off superb cover tackle to deny Bressler in the corner.

26 mins – PEN – 3-7 – Heward makes ground on the left-hand side and Bears are penalised for offside. Weir knocks over penalty.

27 mins – CHANCE – Another let-off for the Bears as Howe is tackled into touch metres out by Radradra.

29 mins – TRY – 10-7 – Weir’s stabbed kick is hacked on by Heward and touched down by Nanai for Worcester's opening try.

34 mins – PEN – 13-7 – High tackle by Vui and Weir lands long-range penalty to extend lead.

38 mins – CHANCE – Charles Piutau held up over the whitewash after another Randall dart from quickly taken penalty.

39 mins – PEN - 13-10 – Penalty at the scrum and Sheedy knocks over from in front of sticks.

HT: Worcester Warriors 13-10 Bristol Bears

45 mins – TRY - 13-15 – Powerful drive at the lineout and Thomas is the try scorer.

51 mins – TRY – 13-22 – Superb line from Siale Piutau and the centre flies in under the posts. Sheedy converts.

52 mins – TRY DISALLOWED – Earl goes in the corner but the TMO rules it out for a foot in touch from Henry Purdy. Tough call.

67 mins – TRY – 13-29 – Great defence forces the ball loose and Uren hacks on and collects to score the Bears' bonus point try. Sheedy converts.

75 mins – TRY – 13-36 – Luatua forces the turnover on the Warriors 22 and Earl steps inside to touch down for try number five.

79 mins – RED – Andrew Kitchener sent off for punch on the floor. Siale Piutau shown a yellow card.
