Stat attack: Enisei STM 9-65 Bristol Bears

Bristol Bears romped to their highest every points tally in a European away fixture, running in 65 points against Enisei STM in Sochi.

Check out the best of the stats from the commanding European win. 

Happy travels

On a soggy afternoon in Sochi, Bristol Bears stormed to their highest ever points tally in a European away fixture (65 points), beating their previous highest of 42 at Viadana in 2001. 

Nick Fenton-Wells scored a hat-trick and Piers O’Conor touched down twice as Pat Lam’s side scored 38 unanswered second-half points.

Joe Joyce, Nick Haining, Mat Protheroe, Jake Armstrong, Sam Graham and Tom Pincus also got in on the act, while Callum Sheedy kicked five conversions. 

Long distance

In what proved to be a one-sided game at the Yug Stadium, Bristol Bears racked up an incredible 923 metres with ball in hand, as they ran in 11 tries.

Two players, Piers O'Conor (116 metres) and Mat Protheroe (108 metres) made it past the 100-metre mark, while Luke Daniels (84 metres) and Andy Uren (81 metres) also made the top four.


Beat it

In a dominant display, Bristol Bears's high-energy attacking play proved too much for the Russian champions, as previously demonstrated by the 923 metres made by the visitors.

But as well as this, Bristol also beat a remarkable 61 defenders in 80 minutes.
