Stat attack: Exeter Chiefs 14-9 Bristol Bears

Tackling numbers, versatile Vui and Tom topping the charts - check out the pick of the numbers from Saturday's Gallagher Premiership clash.



Tackling numbers

In a game that saw Exeter Chiefs enjoy the lion's share of possession and territory (65%), Bristol Bears defence was put to the test by the league leaders. 

Pat Lam's side made 209 tackles (89%) to Exeter's 92, making the hosts work hard throughout a tightly-contested West Country derby. 

Unsurprisingly then, the game's six leading tacklers were all Bristol players.

Battle.


Pincus Panther

Exeter may have had more than eight minutes more possession than Bristol, but it was visitors who possessed the game's leading metre-maker, in Tom Pincus.

The wing, who touched down on his Gallagher Premiership debut against Newcastle Falcons, made 66 metres from seven carries, with Piers O'Conor (57 metres) also in the game's top five. 

On the charge.


Point of Vui

Chris Vui made the switch from second row to back row for Saturday's game, but the Samoa captain still had enormous impact on the game, with a strong showing in attack and defence.

Vui made a game-high 16 tackles, as well as 11 carries, in another impressive display from the 25-year-old.

Versatile.
