Bristol book quarter-final spot after big win

Andy Uren of Bristol Bears

Bristol Bears have made the European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-finals after a comprehensive 107-19 win over Enisei-STM.

The Russian side’s task was made even harder by the dismissal of their number eight Maxim Gargalic in only the third minute for a high tackle.

Bristol were in the mood to take full advantage of their extra man as they booked a place in the quarter-finals helped by a five-try haul for scrum-half Andy Uren.

Ryan Edwards also helped himself to a hat-trick and there was a brace for fellow winger Tom Pincus during a tide of home attacks.

Nick Haining, Tom Lindsay, Jordan Crane, Dan Thomas, Piers O’Connor, Sam Graham and Reiss Cullen completed the try scoring and fly-half Callum Sheedy completed the scoring with ten conversions.

The Russians were 50-7 down by the interval and the only reward for their efforts were consolation tries by winger Denis Simplikevich, lock Uldis Saulite and replacement Stanislav Selskii.
