Stat attack: Gloucester 17-18 Bristol Bears

Lineout theft, O'Conor on the attack and Uren's century. Check out the best of the match stats from the round nine Gallagher Premiership victory over Gloucester at Kingsholm.


Lineout dominance

On a frustrating night for the Bears, one area of real dominance was the lineout.

Between them, second row duo, Chris Vui (1) and Dave Attwood (3) stole four Gloucester lineouts, with their Head Coach, George Skivington admitting after the game, that the Bears' work at the set-piece had a huge impact on the contest.


O'Conor on the attack

The first-half interception from Carreras will be a moment Piers O'Conor will want to forget, but that aside, the Gallagher Premiership Player of the Month was a constant threat throughout the evening.

O'Conor was the game's leading attacker, making 104 metres with ball in hand, beating five defenders and making three clean breaks. One of these breaks saw him power through the Gloucester midfield and round Thorley before being hauled down, only for Uren's pass to be intercepted by Woodward.


Uren's century

Andy Uren made his 100th competitive appearance for the club against Gloucester on Friday night.

The scrum-half, who made his debut as a 16-year-old against Gala in the British and Irish Cup, becomes the 41st player to reach the milestone and the eighth youngest.
