Stat attack: Bristol Bears 39-7 Gloucester Rugby

Semi's introduction, Sheedy's kicking records and sweet 15 for the Bears. Check out the best of the match stats from the round 19 Gallagher Premiership victory over Gloucester at Ashton Gate.


Semi Ran-round-ya

It's incredible to think that Monday night's victory over Gloucester is the first time Semi Radradra has played in front of supporters at Ashton Gate.

The Fijian wasted little time in introducing himself to the Bears faithful with a stellar display at outside centre, making 110 metres from 18 carries, six clean breaks, two offloads and the final try of the evening, collecting Sheedy's no-look pass to canter over.


Sheedy on the climb

Callum Sheedy's conversion of Radradra's late try took him to 195 in the first team, moving ahead of full-back Simon Hogg.

Only Mark Tainton, Alan Pearn, Gordon Cripps, David Sorrell and Adrian Jarvis have kicked more.

Sheedy was man of the match on the evening two, adding two delicious assists to his 14-point haul in BS3.


Sweet 15

A record derby victory over Gloucester also made it 15 Gallagher Premiership wins this season - a new club record, beating the 14 wins achieved in 2006/07 and 2019/20.

Pat Lam's table-toppers are now just one more win away from securing a home semi final, with three rounds left to play.
