'The boys ground it out' - Lam

Pat Lam described the Bears’ first league victory over Wasps since 2006 as ‘a great result’ after his side came from behind to take all five points at a rain-soaked Ashton Gate.

'A great result'

Tries from Piers O’Conor, Niyi Adeolokun, Joe Joyce and Chris Vui’s last-gasp fourth ensured the maximum allocation for Lam’s men – and the Director of Rugby praised his side’s resolve.

"It's 15 years since we last beat Wasps, it's the first time I've beaten them as a coach. Certainly, with the amount of unavailability we have [this was a great result].

"But with our system, it doesn't matter who steps up, we have that culture. The boys worked their way back and ground things out and to get five points in these conditions was fantastic.

"I want us to be used to this Six Nations window. I'm preparing that we're going to have a lot of guys away every year. The whole squad is important, if you play for the Bristol Bears it doesn't matter who puts the jersey on, the job's the same."
