Stat attack: Bristol Bears 17-3 Leicester Tigers

Pati power, lucky number two and Piutau climbing the ladder. Check out the best of the match stats from the Gallagher Premiership victory over Leicester Tigers at Ashton Gate.


Pati power

A powerhouse display from Samoan centre Alapati Leiua, whose shift into the midfield was to very good effect on Saturday.

Starting in the number 12 shirt, Leiua topped the charts for defenders beaten (9) and made 59 metres from eight carries - an average of 7.4 metres per carry.

Leiua also made two clean breaks, the first of which led to Moroni being shown a yellow card for a deliberate knock-on, after Ioan Lloyd had flung an offload back inside.


Lucky number two

Will Capon opened the scoring for the Bears six minutes before half time and following the Tigers reduction to 14 men, with the sin binning of Moroni. 

It's the seventh Premiership try scored Bristol hookers already this season - Bryan Byrne with five, George Kloska with one and Capon's first of the season on Saturday.


Hot stepper

Despite having missed the opening six games of the Gallagher Premiership season, Charles Piutau is now third in league's leading metre maker charts, with 540 from just six games.

His teammate, Piers O'Conor is second with 558 metres, behind Worcester's Nick David (597m).
