Highlights: Newcastle Falcons 17-34 Bristol Bears

Bristol Bears took control after a tricky start to gain a bonus-point win at Newcastle falcons and regain their 12-point lead at the top of the Gallagher Premiership.

Michael Young's interception try helped Falcons to an early 10-0 lead despite Adam Brocklebank being sin-binned.

But Jake Heenan ran through, Max Malins dummied his way to score and Luke Morahan twisted in as Bristol replied.

The visitors went clear with tries from Ben Earl and Malins before Kyle Cooper's consolation score for Falcons.

Pat Lam's Bears are now unbeaten in their past eight Premiership matches, winning six in a row, while 10th-placed Newcastle are on a run of five successive defeats.
