‘We had enough chances’ - Lam

Director of Rugby, Pat Lam lamented ‘silly and unnecessary’ yellow cards after Bristol Bears fell to a 31-18 defeat to Leicester Tigers at Welford Road.

Jordan Lay and Alapati Leiua were both sent to the sin bin inside the opening 20 minutes, leaving the hosts to take full advantage with three first half tries.

Two tries in two minutes from Dan Thomas and Piers O’Conor gave Bristol a route back into the game, but the Tigers pulled away with a fourth try late on.

“We worked our way back to 7-6 and then at half time I showed the boys the clips, we were shocked and unrecognisable in what we were doing,” said Lam.

“At half time I said it was a great challenge, we’ve been here before. We got it back to 21-18 and there was a couple of moments where we just didn’t score.

“The sin bins were silly, they were unnecessary. At the end of the day we had enough chances to get ourselves back into the game that could’ve easily blown up if it weren’t for some silly stuff from us."
