Stat attack: Challenge Cup pool stage

It's a knockout, points mean prizes and Morahan marches on. Check out the best of the stats from Bristol Bears' Challenge Cup campaign so far.


It's a knockout

They fell narrowly short of a clean sweep in Pool Four, but Bristol Bears booked their place in the knockout stages of the Challenge Cup for the second successive season with five wins and a draw. 

Pat Lam's side are now unbeaten in five of their last six away games in Europe, having beaten La Rochelle, Brive and Enisei-STM - as well as Saturday's draw at Zebre.

Luke leading the way

At the end of the pool stages, Luke Morahan tops the competition charts for most clean breaks (13) after a sensational series of performances for the club.

The Australian flyer has also played the most minutes (406) in the competition for the Bears, who will now play Dragons at Ashton Gate in the quarter final.

Points mean prizes

Callum Sheedy finishes the pool stages as the club's leading points scorer, with 40, including 14 conversions. Bristol lead the way in the Challenge Cup for successful conversions (25), thanks to pinpoint displays from Sheedy, Ian Madigan and Ioan Lloyd.

Elsewhere, Will Capon (four) is the Bears' leading try scorer.
