Langley House preview: London Irish (h) - GP R16

Everything you need to know ahead of the Gallagher Premiership round 16 clash against London Irish at Ashton Gate.


FORM GUIDE

Bristol Bears have won their last four first team matches, all with a try bonus point, since slipping up at Exeter in Gallagher Premiership Rugby on New Year’s Day. Bristol have lost three matches at Aston Gate this season, to Saracens in Round 1, Northampton in Round 9 and Leicester in Round 11. 

London Irish’s last five matches have all been won by the home side on the day whilst the Exiles most recent away win was on a trip to Pau in the European Challenge Cup in December. 

Bristol have not been defeated by London Irish since a 21-38 score line at Madejski Stadium in Premiership Rugby in April 2009. Last season’s encounter between the two sides at Ashton Gate was not played with Bristol being awarded the victory. London Irish’s last win on Bristol soil was 18-13 at Memorial Stadium in November 2008.
