Stat attack: Bristol Bears 28-15 Harlequins

Five on the bounce, magic Morahan and fast starters. Check out the best of the match stats from Sunday's Gallagher Premiership victory over Harlequins.


The history boys

A fifth successive win in the Gallagher Premiership sees Bristol Bears reclaim third place in the table - but it's also the first time the club has won that many consecutive games in the top flight since 1996, which was split over two seasons, as told below by Club Statistician, Neil Williams.

If you're looking for five straight wins in the same season, you have to go back nearly 61 years to 1959. 


Magic Morahan

Two more tries for Luke Morahan on Sunday has taken him to 30 in 48 league appearances for Bristol Bears.

The fleet-footed Australian is now the joint leading try scorer in the Gallagher Premiership with seven in 13 games.

Only David Lemi, George Watkins, Sean Marsden and Mitch Eadie have scored more.


Fast starters, strong finishers

Luke Morahan's opening minute score is the fourth time this season that Bristol Bears have scored a try inside the first 10 minutes.

Both games against Bath, the away defeat at Saracens and now Sunday's victory over Quins have all seen Bristol fly out of the traps to catch the opposition cold.

However, it's the final 10 minutes that have proved most profitable for Pat Lam's side, with six tries coming in that period - against Bath at home (2), Sale Sharks, Exeter Chiefs, London Irish and Gloucester.
