CJ Stander would be damn proud of this statistic.
Bristol were pushed a step closer to relegation from the Premiership as they fell to defeat against Exeter at Sandy Park on Saturday. They are now eight points behind 11th-placed Worcester with only three games remaining and Bristol’s relegation could be confirmed if they lose at home to Wasps on Sunday.
The visitors led 34-31 with four minutes to go before a late try from Thomas Waldrom snatched victory for the Chiefs.
Waldrom scored two tries for Exeter, with Olly Woodburn, Geoff Parling and Ian Whitten also getting on the scoresheet. Henry Slade converted four and added a penalty, with Gareth Steenson adding a conversion.
Waldrom was a man possessed on the day, with this incredible statistic proving that.
