Highlights: Bristol Bears 26-26 Leicester Tigers

AJ MacGinty saw his last-gasp penalty come up agonisingly short as Bristol Bears fought back to earn a draw from an enthralling clash with Leicester Tigers at Ashton Gate.

Pat Lamโ€™s side scored four tries courtesy of the returning Semi Radradra, Charles Piutau, Bryan Byrne and the outstanding Gabriel Ibitoye โ€“ and when man of the match Ibitoyeโ€™s late score was converted by AJ MacGinty, the Bears had clawed their way back from 12-26 down to level the scores.

There was still time for more drama when the home side were awarded a penalty with the final play, but MacGintyโ€™s kick was off target and the Bears were forced to settle for three points.
