McMillan: We Must Improve Home Form

Ross McMillan says Bristol are determined to improve home form ahead of the B&I Cup clash with Scarlets on Sunday (3pm KO).

Bristol went down 30-5 to Ulster in the opening round of the competition and McMillan insists the focus is on returning to winning ways at Ashton Gate.

"We've had two under-par displays on the bounce and the lads recognise it's not good enough and that we have to show improvement," the hooker told bristolrugby.co.uk.

"We are disappointed to have lost twice at home in front of our supporters and that's where we are determined to get it right. The backing home and away has been fantastic and we owe them a performance this weekend.

"There is no lack of attitude or hard work. The players are desperate to be successful and to win for one another. There's a great team ethic here and now it's important we stick together and show what we are about.

"We have back-to-back games at Ashton Gate, so it's an opportunity for everyone who is lucky enough to take the field to make a statement and show how much the shirt means to them."
