Stat attack: London Irish 7-36 Bristol Bears

A 13-year wait, trio reach 50 and Fitz and proper. Check out the best of the match stats from Sunday's Gallagher Premiership victory over London Irish at The Stoop.


13-year wait

A Premiership play-off place for the first time in 13 years - that's the size of the achievement from Pat Lam's men.

The 2006/07 season was the last time Bristol finished in the top four, but the current campaign has seen the Bears storm to a record league points tally (69), record points scored (561) and tries (70).


Trio bring up fifty

Both John Afoa (47 competitive and three friendlies) and Chris Vui (49 competitive, one friendly) brought up their 50th appearances for Bristol Bears on Sunday.

Elsewhere, captain Siale Piutau made his 50th competitive appearance for the club - 43 league, three cup and four European games for the Tongan destroyer.


Fitz and proper

Fitz Harding became the 2,243rd first team player to play for Bristol, the 636th in a competitive game and 501st in the league.
