As it happened: Worcester Warriors 23-24 Bristol Bears

Siva Naulago's hat-trick inspired Bristol Bears to a hard-fought bonus-point victory over Worcester Warriors at Sixways.

The winger's first two unconverted tries gave Bristol a 10-0 lead - only for Worcester to level with a converted Perry Humphreys try and a penalty. Andy Uren's solo score on half-time won Bristol back the lead, before Francois Venter's try and two Billy Searle penalties then put Warriors ahead.

But Naulago broke clear to complete his hat-trick before handing over the reins to Callum Sheedy, whose touchline conversion snatched all five points.

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


6 mins – TRY – 0-5 – Well-worked set-piece play, and Sheedy’s pinpoint floated pass sends Naulago over.

29 mins – TRY – 0-10 – Adeolokun with the inside break and Sheedy’s Crossfield kick locates Naulago for a second.

31 mins – TRY – 7-10 – Humphreys crosses from Searle cross-field kick. Shillcock converts.

35 mins – PEN – 10-10 – Searle lands long-range penalty to level the scores.

38 mins – CHANCE – Beck intercepts and races clear but O’Conor gets back to make the tackle and deny the hosts.

40 mins – TRY – 10-17 – Pressure in the Warriors 22 and Uren snipes down the short side to power over. Sheedy converts.

HT: Worcester Warriors 10-17 Bristol Bears

46 mins – PEN – 13-17 – Searle on target again to close the gap.

49 mins – TRY – 20-17 - Venter finishes off a stylish move from Warriors to put the hosts back in front. Searle converts.

53 mins – PEN – 23-17 – A third Searle penalty extends the Warriors’ lead.

73 mins – TRY – 23-24 – That’s the hat-trick for Naulago, who steps inside before powering over in the corner. Sheedy’s conversion edged Bears back in front.

FT: Worcester Warriors 23-24 Bristol Bears
