Preview: Lichfield Ladies v Bristol Ladies

Bristol Ladies kick-off 2017 with a top of the table clash with Lichfield Ladies away on Sunday, January 8th (KO 2pm). 

Bristol Ladies are back into the thick of Premiership and Championship South West Two rugby on Sunday with both the 1st XV and 2nd XV in action. 

The 1st XV make the trip up to Cooke Fields to face league rivals Lichfield Ladies in a top of the table clash.

Bristol have won nine out of ten fixtures so far this season with 44 points gathered so far, whilst Lichfield are second in the league loosing just two games so far.

Last time the two sides met in the league Bristol took the victory by just four points, with the game ending 19-14.

Chantelle Miell and Claire Molloy (2) scored for Bristol back in October, but a penalty try, and two yellow cards in the final ten minutes saw Lichfield push Bristol to the limit. 

With the play-off structure in place, a top four finish all but guaranteed for both sides, but this won't take away from the passion and pride that comes with for the victor on Sunday. 

The 2nd XV welcome Drybrook Ladies to Cleve RFC on Sunday, who are currently only three points adrift from Bristol in the league.

The 2nd XV are sitting in third place on 29 points, with Supermarine also on 29 (with a game in hand), with Drybrook Ladies in fifth place on 26 points.

The last fixture saw Bristol come away with a bonus point victory and ran in seven tries to the home sides one, leaving the score 5-43.

With a loss to Bath Ladies in the fixture before Christmas still fresh in their minds the 2nd XV will be keen to react with a win, with the knowledge that places in the Cup Squad are also up for grabs for those individuals who really step up.
