Stat attack: Harlequins 19-27 Bristol Bears

Leading from the front, Lloyd lights it up and a timely win at The Stoop. Check out the best of the match stats from the Boxing Day bonus-point Gallagher Premiership victory over Harlequins at The Stoop.


Leading from the front

In his first Gallagher Premiership appearance of the season, the skipper led from the front with an inspirational display in the back row.

Steven Luatua scored one and assisted two tries with some deft handling and surging charges through the Quins defence, as the Bears fought back from 9-0 down to earn a bonus-point win at The Stoop.

The skipper also made 13 carries, eight tackles and beat three defenders. It's good to have him back.


Lloyd lights it up

Fly half, full back, wing - it makes no difference to Ioan Lloyd, who put in yet another eye-catching display against Quins at The Stoop.ย 

The Welsh international made 136 metres with ball in hand, beating six defenders, making two offloads and 11 carries, lighting up Boxing Day with his elusive running and red-hot footwork.


A West London triumph

September 2001 was the last time Bristol beat Harlequins at The Stoop in the Gallagher Premiership - that was, until last weekend.

Three second-half tries led the way for Pat Lam's side, who earned a third league win of the season.
