Bears win first European trophy

Posted on

Bristol Bears won the first European trophy in their 132-year history as they beat Toulon in the Challenge Cup final in Aix-en-Provence, France.

Harry Randall's try after 15 seconds set Bristol on their way to their first major honour since the English Cup in 1983. French giants Toulon led 16-10 at half-time, through a Bryce Heem try and points from the kicking tee from Louis Carbonel, but Max Malins' try and 22 points from Callum Sheedy's boot saw the Bears to a 32-.19 victory.
