Steven Luatua wasn't involved in Saturday's game, but the Kiwi back-row congratulated his teammates on a job well done after the final whistle.


It was a special day for co-captain, Jordan Crane, whose son, Hunter was the match day mascot and accompanied his dad, who scored twice during the 80 minutes, on to the pitch before kick-off. 


Five-try hero and record-breaker, Andy Uren, acknowledged his achievement on Twitter post-match after a remarkable display from the homegrown scrum-half at Ashton Gate.


And after the final whistle had blown, European Rugby were quick to confirm the quarter-final draw, with Bristol Bears heading back to La Rochelle, who they have already beaten once in the group stages.


La Rochelle put out a Tweet welcoming Bristol back to the west coast of France, with the tie due to take place on the weekend of March 29/30/31. 


Off the field, it was a memorable day for the Community Foundation's Disability Journalism Programme, who went behind the scenes on match day, including a press conference with Bristol's Joe Latta.
