All things Bristol Bears (Merged)


Recommended Posts

Now I know the result I’m gutted I wasn’t there as usual to watch, it would have been a hard watch though. Well done Bears, very proud. Put Bristol on the map for sure.

Felt sorry for fans in pubs though being kicked out before the match finished!

Fantastic result for Bristol and I know that 27,000 fans would have created a fantastic atmosphere. 

Not to get too ahead of myself as my words may come back to bite me but to me Dragons and Bordeaux were the danger teams for Bristol having watched Leicester this season and Toulon's quarter final there wasn't really anything that scared me unlike Jalibert, Tameifuna, Cordero and Woki. Jalibert I feel is going to be Framce's first choice fly half with Ntamack moving to 12 (ala Ford and Farrell). 

Must have been gutting for those that went to the pub though.

Know a few people that watched the match in pubs and they all stayed open until the end of the game. It overran by less than 10 mins so good to see common sense prevailing. 

I watched the match at my buddies house and as extra time started we all wondered about those who had gone to the pub. Good to see common sense prevailing.

Watching the match with two avid Bears fans was enjoyable in itself...................:rofl2br:

They were both anxious that even when the Bears were 14 points up with 5 mins to go that Bristol would lose. They couldn’t accept that with two converted tries needed that it was now easy peasy.....

Could understand why Semi got sin binned but as the commentators said Bordeaux were getting away with murder. Half their team must have committed a high tackle by the end and although they gave away penalties non were yellow carded, if only to set an example.

But great win!

Yeah....the referee was very inconsistent and Bordeaux were repeatedly coming in from the side but weren’t penalised and as for their high tackles..........:disapointed2se:

Tbh I though Semi getting sin binned was harsh compared to other high tackles that went unpenalised.

If Toulon win it's at the Stade Jean Bouin in Paris

Looking likely as it’s 27-14 right now, and I agree their pitch at Toulon is terrible.

He will be assisted from the Ashton Gate touchlines by Tom Foley and Paul Dix, while Claire Hodnett serves as Television Match Official in place of Maxwell-Keys.

I'm not a rugby fan (don't understand it) but why do they always announce the team a day or so before the game? Surely (like football) keep the other lot guessing.........element of surprise .
