Stat attack: Bristol Bears 107-19 Enisei-STM

The records tumbled at Ashton Gate on Saturday, Bristol Bears romped to their highest ever points total, running in a mammoth 107 points against Enisei STM.

Check out the best of the stats from the commanding European win. 



High five

It was an afternoon to remember for Andy Uren, who scored four time sin the first-half and once in the second to become the first Bristol player - and only the third British player - to score five tries in a European fixture. 

Uren's haul smashed the previous record of four held by legendary wing, David Lemi and equalled Luke Nabaro's effort in a league fixture against Blackheath. 

The scrum-half was only on the field for 57 minutes, averaged a try every 11 minutes and making an incredible 175 metres with ball in hand.

Five-star show.


By the thousand

As you'd expect in a game with such a scoreline, Bristol Bears' players covered plenty of distance with ball in hand on Saturday - 1,193 metres to be precise.

Three players smashed the 100-metre mark, with Ryan Edwards (212 metres) topping the bill, and Tom Pincus (181 metres) and Andy Uren (175 metres) also racking up some distance. 

Runaway.


Points mean prizes

Bristol's previous highest points total in a European fixture was 89 against Viadana in 2005 - but 17 tries and 11 conversions ensured Bristol would fly past that record on their way to a 107-19 win.

Incidentally, due to Northampton Saints mammoth 111-3 victory over Timișoara Saracens on Friday night, Bristol needed to win by 85 clear point to finish above their Premiership rivals in the seedings.  

And they did - just - with Ryan Edwards' hat-trick try in the 79th minute taking Bristol past the magic number of 104, after Enisei scored three tries to rack up 19 points.
