Match preview: Harlequins (a) - GP R4

Everything you need to know ahead of Friday's Gallagher Premiership clash with Harlequins at the Twickenham Stoop (7.45pm KO).


FORM GUIDE

Harlequins have won their last five Gallagher Premiership Rugby matches since their 12-45 reversal at Sale on 4 June. The Londoners are unbeaten in their last ten contests at the Twickenham Stoop in Premiership Rugby including a run of nine successive victories. The only previous occasion that Harlequins have won nine successive home games in the tournament was in season 2013/14.

Bristol Bears 25-20 win over Bath last Friday ended a three-game losing run in Gallagher Premiership Rugby. The Bears only away win in Premiership Rugby since early May was 26-23 at Leicester in round 21 last season.

The two clubs met on three occasions last season with Bristol taking both fixtures in the regular campaign but Harlequins winning a thrilling semi-final at Ashton Gate 43-36 after extra time. Bristol have won on their last two visits to Twickenham Stoop beating London Irish there in October 2020 and Harlequins on Boxing Day.
