Stat attack: Bristol Bears 30-13 Worcester Warriors

Lloyd lights it up, Life of Bryan and Thomas tops the charts. Check out the best of the match stats from Saturday's Gallagher Premiership victory over Worcester Warriors at Ashton Gate.


Lloyd lights it up

Back in the Bears fold after making his Wales debut against Georgia, Ioan Lloyd was cut above the rest at Ashton Gate on Sunday.

The 19-year-old carved open the Worcester defence midway through the first half to send Piers O'Conor over for the opening score, just minutes after driving Nick David into touch metres from the Bears' line with an astounding try-saving tackle.

Lloyd made 93 metres with ball in hand from 15 carries, beating four defenders, making two clean breaks and kicking eight points in a stylish man of the match performance.


Life of Bryan

The fulcrum of the Bears' lineout drive was hooker Bryan Byrne, who impressed in the number two shirt on Saturday.

Having joined from Leinster on a permanent contract, the Irishman was central to a dominant display from the home side's pack, with 10 successful lineouts, leading to three crucial tries in BS3 - including one for himself.

Byrne also made 14 carries and 13 tackles in an impressive all-round outing. 


Thomes' tackle count

For the second week running, Dan Thomas topped the Bears' tackle count, making 16 in a physical tussle with Worcester. 

Thomas also shifted to the front of the lineout late on, collecting Byrne's throw before Nathan Hughes drove Siale Piutau over the whitewash.
