It was another afternoon to remember for Harry Thacker, with the hooker scoring twice against his former club, just a week after bagging a second-half hat-trick against Wasps. And Thacker's Instagram post sums it all up...


Scrum-half, Harry Randall scored his first Gallagher Premiership try courtesy of a fine sniping break from the halfway line, but the youngster heaped praise on the team effort against Leicester Tigers.


The King of Southmead impressed for Bristol on Saturday, and he was also quick to celebrate victories for two of his previous clubs, Ding Crusaders and Southmead RFC.


Luke Morahan's stunning long-range try prompted wild celebrations in the stands, but also on the bench, with forwards coach, Jonathan Thomas' passion and enjoyment not going unnoticed. 


The bonus-point win got club statistician, Neil Williams very excited - and he came up with this beauty.


And the match stats continued to flow, with Opta tweeting this record-breaker.
