Match preview: Leicester Tigers (a) - GP R24

Everything you need to know ahead of the Gallagher Premiership clash against Leicester Tigers at Mattioli Woods Welford Road.



FORM GUIDE

Leicester Tigers have lost just two of their last eight Premiership Rugby fixtures, both away from home, at Saracens in Round 19 and at Harlequins in Round 23. The Tigers have won their last fifteen matches at Mattioli Woods Welford Road in all competitions since today’s opponents, Bristol, beat them there last June. 

Bristol Bears home victory against Gloucester by a solitary point ended a four-game losing run in Gallagher Premiership Rugby. The Bears only away win in Premiership Rugby this season was 45-33 against London Irish on 30 October. 

Leicester beat Bristol 28-26 at Ashton Gate on Boxing Day and have not achieved a Premiership Rugby season’s double over the Bears since 2016/17. Bristol beat Leicester 26-23 on their most recent visit to Welford Road and have not achieved back-to-back wins at the venue since 1964-65. 

Leicester Tigers won the reverse of this fixture earlier in the season (28-26 in Round 11) after losing five of their previous six games against Bristol Bears in the Premiership (W1); Bears have won two of their last three games away games against Leicester (L1), after losing all 11 of their previous league games at Mattioli Woods Welford Road.
