Stat attack: Exeter Chiefs 42-19 Bristol Bears

Dun's defence, Stirzaker goes the distance and debutant makes impact. Check out the best of the match stats from Saturday's Premiership Cup defeat to Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park.


Dun and dusted

James Dun shifted from blindside to openside for this clash against the Chiefs, and the Academy youngster put in a huge shift for his side at Sandy Park.

Dun topped the tackle charts with an incredible 24 tackles (96%), the most by anyone in the match.

Workhorse. 


Stirzaker stands out

Captaining the side for the first time, Nic Stirzaker put in a man of the match performance at Sandy Park.

The scrum half made the joint most metres in the match, running for 90 metres with ball in hand, from 11 carries, including a fine interception in the closing stages. 

Distance.


TJ's entrance

Tyrese Johnson-Fisher made his professional debut on Saturday, coming on as a second-half substitute for the final 14 minutes.

And the young flyer made quite the impact against the Chiefs, making 63 metres in a fleet-footed display, including an pacey break downfield after collecting Sam Bedlow's offload.
