Bristol Ladies To Play At Ashton Gate

Bristol Ladies will open the RFU Women’s Premiership campaign at Ashton Gate in a unique double header on Sunday, September 6.

Immediately following Bristol’s Greene King IPA Championship clash with Bedford Blues, the Ladies will face Worcester (5.15pm kick-off).

The game is free entry for supporters.

“We couldn’t ask for a better way to kick start our new campaign: the first time we’ve played at Ashton Gate, in front of a Bristol Rugby crowd and against a local rival,” Head Coach LJ Adams told bristolrugby.co.uk.

“All the players are ready to put on an exciting brand of Bristol Rugby which I know will attract new supporters to the women's game.”

The two sides met twice last season, with Bristol winning 36-22 in October, before going down 22-5 at the Portway in the return fixture.
