Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's Gallagher Premiership clash with London Irish at the Brentford Community Stadium (3pm KO).


FORM GUIDE

London Irishs six month wait for a victory ended with their 33-21 win at Exeter on Saturday. The Exiles have not been victorious at Brentford in Premiership Rugby since beating Bath there 36-33 on 27 March, although they have drawn two of their last three matches there.

Bristol Bears only win in their last six Gallagher Premiership Rugby was 25-20 at home to Bath on 1 October. The Bears have lost their last three away games since their 26-23 success at Leicester in Round 21 last season.

Excluding the unplayed game in June, Bristol are unbeaten in their last three matches against London Irish since the Exiles 38-21 victory at Madejski Stadium in April 2009, a sequence which includes two high scoring draws.
