Report: Saracens U18s 29-12 Bristol Bears U18s

Bristol Bears U18s slipped to a 29-12 defeat at the hands of Saracens in the U18 League on Sunday.

Deago Bailey scored twice at Allianz Park to keep Bears in the hunt for a losing bonus point, but a last minute touch down for the home side ensured Bristol left empty handed.

It was Saracens who raced into a 7-0 lead, before Bailey's first of the afternoon - converted by Tom Wilstead - drew the visitors level.

Saracens added two scores and a penalty goal to stretch their advantage to 22-7 after the interval and, although Bailey's second gave Bristol hope at 22-12, the hosts proved too strong with their fourth try in the eightieth minute.

Bristol Bears U18s: 15. Chay Mullins; 14. Deago Bailey, 13. Harry Rowson, 12. Dylan Power, 11. Ollie Holiday; 10. Tom Wilstead, 9. Cal Smith; 1. Andrew Turner, 2. Jalen Curry, 3. Aaron Thompson, 4. George Taylor, 5. Charlie Rice, 6. Jamie Collier (c), 7. Mason Hughes, 8. Fergus Dick.

Replacements: 16. Tomas Gwilliam, 17. Tom Sims, 18. George Perry, 19. Spike Brain Jangen, 20. Soloman Taufua, 21. Angus Judkins, 22. Jack Lloyd, 23. Benjy Joseland.
