Stat attack: Bristol Bears 40-3 Leicester Tigers

Niyi's wheels, Thacker haunts Tigers and a record points tally. Check out the best of the match stats from Wednesday's Gallagher Premiership victory over Leicester Tigers at Ashton Gate.


Niyi's wheels

On his home debut, Niyi Adeolokun did everything but score.

The flying winger made 167 metres, beat nine defenders and had a try disallowed as the Bears ran riot at Ashton Gate.

The former Connacht man also had a hand in Ben White's first-half yellow card, delivering the killer pass to the onrushing Piers O'Conor, only for the Tigers captain to slap it down.



Thacker haunts Tigers

Harry Thacker's second-half score means the hooker has now scored more tries (4) against his former club than against any other Gallagher Premiership side.

Thacker collected Uren's inside pass to score his seventh league try of the season on Wednesday night. 


Drawing level

The Bears' bonus-point victory over Tigers takes them to 64 league points in the Premiership, equalling their previous best from the 2006/07 season with one game left to play. 

Club statistician, Neil Williams with the information, as always.
