Stat attack: Bristol Bears 34-16 Gloucester

Sheedy passes 500, Luatua leads from the front, and Hughes causes carnage. Check out the best of the match stats from Saturday's Gallagher Premiership victory over Gloucester.


Points mean prizes

Callum Sheedy's 19-point haul against Gloucester fired Bristol Bears to a much-needed victory at Ashton Gate.

The fly half kicked seven out of eight from the tee, with five penalties and two conversions, and in doing so, passed 500 points for the club. He is just the 24th player to achieve this since 1888.

It also took Sheedy to 140 points for the season, the club's leading points scorer in the 2019/20 campaign.


O' captain, my captain

It's becoming something of a given, but Steven Luatua provided yet another inspirational performance from the back row, leading from example in an impressive Bristol win.

The skipper made 13 tackles (81%), 10 carries and three crucial, momentum swinging turnovers, as the Bears repelled the Cherry and Whites. 

Luatua also had a hand in Henry Purdy's second half try, sweeping a pass to Leiua on the right-hand side to set the Samoan free in Gloucester territory.


Hughes causes carnage

Nathan Hughes powered through the heart of the Gloucester defence on numerous occasions in a man of the match performance in front of the BT Sport cameras.

Hughes was the game's outstanding carrier, completing 18 and making 108 metres. The number eight also beat six defenders and made two clean breaks. 

Add to that seven tackles, and you've got yourself a brute of a display from Hughes.
