In this week's show emotions are still a bit raw as we discuss the semi final defeat at home against Harlequins. How did we manage to let slip a 28 point lead on the brink of halftime and end up losing 36-43 after extra time. For the neutral (and Quins fans) possibly one of the greatest Premiership games of all time, but for Bears fans nothing but …

The regular season is over and we've finished top of the pile without playing a game this weekend. Our round 22 fixture against London Irish was cancelled and the four points received guaranteed a top finish for Pat and the boys. We discuss how the cancellation might affect preparations for next week, especially after witnessing the bruising encoun…

Despite recording only our third win at Welford Road in the league, the 26-23 victory will be remembered as much for what happened on the sideline as the events on the pitch.

In this week's show we analyse Bristol's 22-12 defeat away at Sale Sharks. After a scoreless first half, Sale made the most of Semi Radradra's yellow card to score two crucial tries and close the gap to us in the table. Sale played well and defended ferociously to put us off our game, but did the lack of a plan B to deal with their rush defence ult…
 
In this week's show we are joined by Lewis from the Shark Tank podcast as we look ahead to the game at the AJ Bell Stadium. Will Pat send his strongest team or will we see some rotation as we head into the final three games of the regular season. After the narrow loss at home to Sale this year and the trouncing a weaker Bears team took end the end …
 
It was the moment we'd all been waiting for as Ashton Gate opened the turnstiles once more to fans after 435 days away. In what will go down as one of the most memorable games for many a year, Bristol Bears recorded a comfortable 39-7 win against Gloucester. The five-point win keeps Bristol top of the pile but, as well as the returning fans, this b…

In this episode we talk about the prospects of a Bristol Bears win away at Bath. We get the inside track on our local rivals from our friends at Bath Bytes (Twitter account) and the Bath Rugby Plug (podcast) who give us their insight on how Bath have improved since the last time they played us - the 48-3 Bristol win back in January.

In this week's episode we review the 20-12 defeat at home against Exeter. Fair play to the Chiefs who got their tactics spot on to take a narrow win at Ashton Gate.

In this week's show we review the 34-17 win away at Newcastle Falcons. After a shaky first 20 minutes the Bears came roaring back scoring five tries and playing some of their best rugby for several weeks. It was another five-point haul to maintain our 12 point lead at the top of the table. We look forward to Friday's top-of-the-table clash with Exe…

In this week's show we discuss the disappointing 36-17 defeat at the hands of Bordeaux and our exit from this season's Champions Cup. We came up against a good Bordeaux team for sure, but we ask - did we do ourselves justice in France? We also debate the performance of the referee and TMO. Some questionable decision making but was this the main rea…
 
It was another dramatic late finish for the Bears to score two tries in the final five minutes to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. A cracking game of rugby and we discuss the performances, tactics and other talking points from the 35-33 win at Ashton gate.

We discuss the game, the tactics and t…

In this week's show we discuss the narrow 24-23 win at Sixways against Worcester Warriors.

In this week's show we try to make sense of the crazy 34-34 draw away at London Irish. Bristol up by 31-13 at the break and seemingly in control with a try-scoring bonus point in the bag.

In this week's show we review the 18-17 Bristol victory away at Gloucester. We got the win in the end but it was a mis-firing performance by the Bears at Kingsholm not helped by gifting two interception tries. Was it the weather? Was it the absence of certain key players, or was it just one of those days? We look ahead to the next game away at Lond…
