Stat attack: Bristol Bears 35-33 Harlequins

The Wizard of Oz, Fitz's moment of history and Sheedy's fitting century. Check out the best of the match stats from the round 15 Gallagher Premiership victory over Harlequins at Ashton Gate.


The Wizard

Moving from wing to full back, Luke Morahan delivered a sensational display for the Bears, topping the attacking charts of a game featuring so many lethal threats.

The Australian made 163 metres from 11 carries, as well as beating six defenders and making two clean breaks, as the Bears fought back to claim yet another late win in the Gallagher Premiership.


Fitz makes history

After an impressive cameo at Franklin's Gardens last week, Fitz Harding was thrust into the action a lot earlier this week - and the young flanker didn't disappoint.

Harding signed his first senior contract at the club last week and celebrated that with a first-half try against Quins, collecting Bryan Byrne's offload to canter in under the sticks. As well as being his first Premiership try, it was also the 15,000th try in the competition's history.


Sheedy's memorable century

A Six Nations title, a century of Bristol appearances and the match-winning touchline conversion - not a bad week for Callum Sheedy.

The fly half became just the 40th player to make 100 competitive appearances for the club, scoring 717 points along the way.

And with the clock in the red, Sheedy took centre stage again on Saturday, converting Kyle Sinckler's last-gasp try to seal all five point for the Bears.
