Report: Bristol Bears 51-26 Harlequins

Bristol Bears swept aside Harlequins with a sensational seven-try display at Ashton Gate to earn a fourth successive win in the Gallagher Premiership.

Harry Thacker, Gabriel Ibitoye and Semi Radradra propelled the Bears into a 31-12 half-time lead, with Jack Kenningham and Josh Bassett responding.

Kenningham got a second to give Quins hope, but Charles Piutau and Harry Randall took the hosts past 50 points.

Cadan Murley's interception score secured a try bonus point as Quins clawed back a late consolation.

A fourth straight Premiership win leaves Pat Lam's men seven points outside the top four in seventh with four games left.
