Stat attack: Bristol Bears 41-10 Leicester Tigers

Bristol Bears racked up some impressive numbers during Saturday's Gallagher Premiership victory over Leicester Tigers at Ashton Gate, including a season record. 

Check out the best of the stats from Saturday's memorable Gallagher clash. 



Running wild

Bristol Bears have played some exhilarating stuff already this season, but the running display against Leicester Tigers topped the lot at Ashton Gate, as they put on a stunning display of free-flowing rugby.

Pat Lam's side racked up an incredible 792 metres with ball in hand on Saturday, taking full advantage on their one-man advantage - following Kyle Eastmond's sending off - to run Leicester ragged. 

In comparison, the visitors managed just 453 metres, as Bristol continuously found space in the wide channels to run in four tries and secure a first bonus-point win of the season in front of more than 12,000 supporters.

Scintillating stuff. 


Razzle dazzle

Since his return from injury, Charles Piutau has wowed the Bristol Bears faithful with his attacking prowess - and Saturday was no different. 

Piutau made 19 carries, 103 metres and beat nine defenders in another sensational display from the Kiwi full-back. 

X-Factor.


Sensational support

Saturday's attendance of 12,237 took the season total to more than 100,000 at Ashton Gate after just eight home fixtures. 

In the Gallagher Premiership, 82,063 supporters have visited Ashton Gate after nine rounds (five home games), leaving Bristol Bears second in the attendance table behind Northampton Saints (89,896).

That figure includes Saints' game against Leicester Tigers which was moved to Twickenham.
