Stat attack: Bristol Bears 56-17 Dragons

Home comforts, Bears' century of tries and the full Radradra. Check out the best of the match stats from Friday's Challenge Cup quarter final victory over Dragons at Ashton Gate.


Home comforts

Two home games and two resounding wins for Pat Lam's men in September.

The Bears ran in eight tries against Northampton Saints and seven against Dragons to prove that home advantage still remains behind closed doors.

In doing so, the Bears have racked up an incredible 1,665 metres with ball in hand in just two games -ย 773 metres vs Dragons and 892 metres vs Saints, with three length-of-the-field tries across the two games. Scintillating stuff.

Of these metres, Semi Radradra leads the way with 231, while Ben earl has made 154.

When it clicks, Lam's men can look unstoppable.


A Bears century

Ben Earl's opening try of the evening on Friday was the Bears' 100th in all competitions this season, coming from 31 games.

From these 31 games, their record so far is won 20, drawn two, lost nine. Points for 845, points against 632. Tries 105, conversions 85, penalties 50.


The full Radradra

There's a theme developing and it centres around the sensational Semi Radradra.

The Fijian put on yet another show at Ashton Gate on Friday night. scoring one, assisting two and carving the Dragons to pieces.

Radradra made 92 metres from 10 carries and was once again the focal point of a rampant Bears side.
