Stat attack: Bristol Bears 37-20 Bordeaux-Begles

Point of Vui, Semi stands out and Max power. Check out the best of the match stats from Friday's Challenge Cup semi final victory over Bordeaux-Begles at Ashton Gate.


Point of Vui

As he so often does, Chris Vui put in an industrious 100-minute performance for the Bears on Friday night.

The Samoan was a focal point for the home side, making 13 carries, 16 tackles and taking six out of six lineouts on a memorable night for the club.


Semi believable

Against his former club, Radradra put on yet another show at Ashton Gate, turning provider on two occasions, with assists for Steven Luatua and Max Malins.

The Fijian made 23 carries and 117 metres and beating six defenders. Even a second-half yellow card couldn't detract from Radradra's world class display in the number 13 shirt. 


Max power

That's six tries in six appearances for Max Malins after yet another brace for the Bears.

The full back, on loan from Saracens, was named man of the match by BT Sport for his two crucial tries and a quite wonderful offload to Piers O'Conor for the opening score during extra time.

Malins made 112 metres and four clean breaks from 19 carries in a complete performance from the number 15.
