Preview: Bristol Ladies vs Aylesford Bulls Ladies

Bristol Ladies Rugby take on Aylesford Bulls in the second round of the Women's Premiership at Cleve RFC on Sunday, September 18th (KO 2:45pm). 

The forwards are mostly unchanged, with strong performances last week seeing all eight keep their starting shirts.

Acheson, named in the EPS squad yesterday, will be looking to cement this news with a competent display, whilst Carys Phillips on the bench will be pushing Nielson for the starting hooker shirt this season too.

Snowsill is out with Welsh 7s so Reed moves to 10, and University of Bristol student Tilly Vaughan Fowler comes into the fold for the first time this season at 11.

Tries for McNaney and Roberts last weekend helped them secure their starting shirts for Sunday, with Miell impressing for the 2nd XV last week - and so moving to the bench.

A notable addition to the bench, England Captain Sarah Hunter pulls on a Bristol shirt for the first time after completing her rest period post summer tour to the USA.

Aylesford put out solid performance against Worcester last weekend, beating them 27 - 6 at Sixways. The half time score of 7 - 6 ensured an battling 2nd half, although two tries in three minutes saw Worcester lose touch with the score.

This will be our first 1st XV home game at Cleve RFC - with a BBQ and entertainment being put on by the club prior to kick off.
