Stat attack: Bristol Bears 37-11 Stade Francais

Full house from the tee, Morahan leading the way and Bears top the chart. Check out the best of the match stats from Saturday's Challenge Cup victory over Stade Francais at Ashton Gate.

Full house

After just three rounds of the European Challenge Cup, Bristol Bears are the only side with maximum points, and have scored 17 tries, 16 conversions and five penalties, for a points difference of +100.

Goal kickers Ian Madigan, Callum Sheedy and Ioan Lloyd have slotted 21/22 kicks at a 95.5% success rate.

Clean as a whistle

The fleet footed Luke Morahan has now made the most clean breaks (eight) in the European Challenge Cup in the opening three rounds. 

The Australian showed his footballing skills to cross for Bristol's opening try of the afternoon, chipping a loose ball into his own hands before cruising in to score. 

Top of the tree

As well as being the only side to take maximum points from their opening three pool fixtures, Bristol also top the charts for tries (17), points (132), conversions (16), defenders beaten (97), lineouts won (48), tackles (456) and turnovers won (22).

They head to Paris this weekend looking to strengthen their grip on Pool Four ahead of the final rounds of fixtures in the New Year.
