Stat attack: Gloucester Rugby 24-33 Bristol Bears

Sensational Semi, an historic win and a tip of the cap. Check out the best of the match stats from Friday's Gallagher Premiership victory over Gloucester at Kingsholm.


Sensational Semi

As far as first-half performances go, Semi Radradra's showing at Kingsholm has to be right up there. The Fijian was sensational throughout the Bears' bonus-point triumph, but his display in the opening 40 minutes was nothing short of remarkable.

After just 20 minutes, Radradra had run for 79 metres, provided two assists and scored his maiden try for the club.

By full time, the centre had surged 147 metres with ball in hand from 16 carries, as well as dominating in defence with two turnovers.

Semi Radradra has arrived in the Gallagher Premiership, and it's going to be a lot of fun.


An historic win

It's been a long time coming for Bristol Bears fans, but Friday night's triumph at Kingsholm was the club's first in more than 14 years. March 2006 was the last time Bristol get one over on the Cherry and Whites on away soil, but this win also completed the double over Gloucester.

In fact, it's the first time since 1967 that Bristol have recorded away wins at both Gloucester and Bath in the same season - and the first time EVER that they have done the league double over both of their West Country rivals.Β 


Tip of the cap

The result aside, it was also a special night for two of the Bears side, with Yann Thomas making his 100th Premiership appearance - 74 of them for Gloucester.

Alapati Leiua was also very impressive on his 50th competitive appearance for the Bears - a fine effort from the bulldozing Samoan.

Elsewhere, Callum Sheedy's four conversions took him to 77 for the club, overtaking Gavin Henson.Β
