FORM GUIDE

Newcastle Falcons have slipped to four straight defeats in Gallagher Premiership Rugby since beating Harlequins 25-22 at Kingston Park on 27 February. That victory over the Londoners is the Tynesiders only win at Kingston Park since January.

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.
