Premier League Rugby | Match Report: Exeter Chiefs 17-20 Bristol Bears


** The Bristol Bears scored a last-minute attempt to make an incredible comeback and win their first win at Sandy Park in a decade. **

The visitors drew by 17 points during the break but overtook the third highest points in Gallagher Premier League history in the playoffs.

Henry Slade took the ball within a meter of the tryline and after a couple of shots from forward Sam Simmonds was able to get over with 15 minutes on the clock.

And ten minutes later, a stolen line-out saw the ball pass nicely through his back before moving back into the field for Nic White to finish.

But Callum Sheedy set the wheels in the second half with two penalties before Piers O'Conor completed a nice move to put the guests within touching distance.

And as the clock ticked in the red, a driving maul chewed up 20 yards from the Sandy Park course before Dan Thomas eventually grounded the ball to end the comeback.
