That the strongest bench I've seen from us for a long time! I think Rona is more effective in the midfield but we do need to find a way for Stephenson to get in the team so can see the thinking behind it. O-HC unlucky not to make the squad

Solid defensive team to snuff out the Bears flamboyance. We can cause an upset and some mayhem this weekend

Very good side form us but that briz team looks top 6 possibly even top 4 capable so will be a tough tough game.

Two strong teams. Can see this being a 5-2 split either way but probably to the home side.

Bristol are defo going to be top 6.

I'd love a win but would be ok with a losing bonus point

Mild niggle for Dell and Kepu in Jan.. front row is solid for now but he will be a great back up to Ollie

Think this is a first, nobody outside Bris has really rated our squad. Pretty much the same as last year and that was allegedly "championship + prem squad standard players at best with a couple of mercenaries on top"... I do think we have a good squad with depth and some real talent coming through but we all like to think that of our clubs don't we?

Personally I wouldn't be surprised to see you guys picking up an away win, hope we've been doing our homework as Li look good for mid table, quite impressive signings and you've been playing well. Either way hope you enjoy the trip down if you're coming, but don't break our home record. tongue sticking out smiley

I think under the direction of Pat Lam the whole ethos of the club is a completely different animal to the dross you've been served in the passed, what he achieved at Connaught was remarkable and he's building a club culture at Briz that is incrementally getting better as time goes on. I hope that we give a good account of ourselves, but Briz will turn a few heads this season for the right reasons.
