FORM GUIDE

Gloucester Rugby have not been victorious in Gallagher Premiership Rugby since beating Wasps at Kingsholm in Round Two. The Cherry & Whites have lost their last three home games in the tournament, their worst run at Kingsholm since 2016.

Bristol Bears six game winning run in Gallagher Premiership Rugby ended with their home defeat to Sale last Friday. Bristol have won their last three away games in all competitions, their best sequence on the road since they were playing in England’s second tier in season 2017/18.

Bristol have won their last five fixtures against Gloucester in all competitions since Gloucester’s 35-13 victory at Kingsholm in Premiership Rugby in September 2018. The Bears have won only twice at Kingsholm in Premiership Rugby, in March 2006 and August 2020.
