Stat attack: Worcester Warriors 13-36 Bristol Bears

Semi's 60-minute takeover, Siale the centrepiece and a century for homegrown Joyce. Check out the best of the match stats from Friday's Gallagher Premiership victory over Worcester at Sixways.


Semi's 60-minute takeover

197 metres, nine defenders beaten, three clean breaks and four offloads. Quite incredible figures from the one-man Fijian showreel - even more so when you take into consideration that Semi Radradra was only the field for 61 minutes on Friday night.

Named the Bears' man of the match after yet another devastating attacking display in the midfield, Radradra's third-minute break gave his side the field position for Ed Holmes' opener, while his 80-metre surge early in the second half earned the penalty that saw Dan Thomas touch down.Β 


Siale the Bears' centrepiece

Siale Piutau's post-lockdown form has been sensational. The centre missed much of the first half of the season with a knee injury, but his return has been outstanding, leading the Bears defence from the midfield and demonstrating his leadership and experience.

But his attacking play has been just as impressive, highlighted by a brilliantly taken try on Friday night, hitting Uren's flat pass back against the grain to touch down under the posts.

Piutau made 72 metres from 10 carries against the Warriors, beating six defenders and making six tackles.


Century up for homegrown Joyce

After becoming the first rugby player to make 50 appearances at Ashton Gate last month, homegrown hero Joe Joyce brought up a century of competitive appearances for the club on Friday night.

Joyce, who made his debut in 2014, received a commemorative shirt following before leading the victory song at Sixways.Β
