Stat attack: Worcester Warriors 23-24 Bristol Bears

Three's a party, Hooray Henry and discipline pays dividends. Check out the best of the match stats from the round 12 Gallagher Premiership victory over Worcester Warriors at Sixways.


Three's a party

No doubt who was the star of the show at Sixways on Saturday evening.

Siva Naulago bagged his first hat-trick in the Gallagher Premiership and only the fourth Bristol hat-trick in Premiership history, following in the footsteps of Brendon Daniel (2002), Tom Varndell (2016) and most recently, Harry Thacker (2018).

Naulago made 120 metres, beat five defenders and made three clean breaks in a quite sensational individual display. His three tries have seen him overtake Bryan Byrne as the club's leading try scorer in the Premiership this season with six.


Hooray Henry

Henry Purdy returned from injury to take his place at full back - and it was as if he'd never been away.

Making 111 metres with ball in hand and topping the carrying charts with 17, Purdy was a constant threat to the Warriors, beating four defenders and making two clean breaks.


Discipline pays dividend

After conceding a combined 30 penalties in their last two Premiership outings (13 vs London Irish, 17 vs Leicester Tigers), the Bears conceded just six on Saturday evening, laying the foundations for a ninth league win of the campaign for Pat Lam's table-toppers.


Fitz and proper

An impressive full Gallagher Premiership debut for Fitz Harding, who made his first start for the Bears at openside on Saturday.

The former Durham University man impressed at Sixways, topping the Bears tackle count with 14. Harding also made nine carries before being replaced by Jake Heenan on 58 minutes.
