Report: Bristol Bears U18s 25-3 Gloucester U18s

Bristol Bears U18s made it two wins from two in the Academy U18 League with a commanding 25-3 victory over Gloucester at Shaftesbury Park on Thursday afternoon.

Bristol-based Xledger provides cloud-based finance software for mid-market organisations. With more than 10,000 customers in over 60 countries, the Bristol office is currently embarking on a period of significant expansion. 


The young Bears ran in four tries to storm to a bonus-point win in front of a bumper crowd at the home of Dings Crusaders, with James Randall, Isaac Campbell Wu, Ed Harvey and George Davey all touching down in an impressive team display.

After a cagey start in greasy conditions, a well worked driving lineout saw hooker James Randall expertly pitch to the tail before applying the finishing touches to a powerful drive for the game's opening score.

Scrum half Rhys Price knocked over a conversion to extend the Bears' lead, before Gloucester fly half Keillen Cullen landed a long-range effort on the stroke of half time.

Early in the second period, centre Campbell Wu scooped up a loose ball inside the Gloucester 22 to fly over in the corner, before number eight Ed Harvey barged his way to the line from close range, as the Bears took full control of the contest.

Four minutes from time, the bonus point was in the bag when replacement hooker George Davey finished off another impressive lineout drive from the young Bears, with Lucas Berti's conversion sealing a second successive win.

Bristol Bears U18s: 15. Sami Hamid, 14. Gabe Lacey, 13. Isaac Campbell Wu, 12. Lucas Berti, 11. Tom Ormsby, 10. Henry Hawkins, 9. Rhys Price; 1. Louis Trevett, 2. James Randall, 3. Billy Moran, 4. Ollie Thraves, 5. Paddy Pearce, 6. Aaron Tull (c), 7. Charlie Cox, 8. Ed Harvey.

16. George Davey, 17. Louis White, 18. Jimmy Halliwell, 19. Myles Langley, 20. Archie Prewett, 21. Pete Carter, 22. Jamie Wood, 23. Jake Smith.

Tries: Randall 17, Campbell Wu 37, Harvey 60, Davey 66. Cons: Berti 66. Pens: Price 26.
