Bristol Bears are unbeaten in their last seven Gallagher Premiership Rugby fixtures and have won their last five in a row since the draw at London Irish in Round 10. Should they avoid defeat this weekend they will set a new Bristol Premiership record for consecutive unbeaten matches in the competition.

The Bears have won their last three fixtures against the Falcons since Newcastle’s 39-27 win at Ashton Gate in May 2017.
