Bristol guaranteed they will finish top of the RFU Championship with a 25-21 win over second-place London Welsh in front of 8,600 spectators at the Memorial Stadium.
Bristol appeared to be coasting to victory as they ran in four unanswered tries, two from Ben Mosses as they built a 22-0 lead with 13 minutes remaining. But London Welsh staged a late rally to score three times in the last eight minutes to set up a tense last few seconds.
London Welsh's cause was not helped when Richard Thorpe sent off five minutes from time after the TMO spotted him punching Bristol prop Jason Hobson.
