Talking points: Wasps (h) - Gallagher Premiership

Check out they key talking points from this week's media session, as Director of Rugby, Pat Lam and Nathan Hughes previewed the round 13 Gallagher Premiership clash with Wasps at Ashton Gate (7.45pm KO, live on BT Sport 1 HD).

'We’ll have to be at our best'

Pat Lam on Wasps: “There are some quality players in there, and it’s like we found with Worcester, they are so desperate to get a win and that makes them dangerous. So, the focus for us has to make sure that we are mentally and physically prepared, after the recovery that we had and the challenge we face.

“There’s a lot of respect for them – they are the one time we haven’t beaten since we’ve been back in the Premiership and it’s always been a tough match against them. We expect exactly the same against them this week.”

'Back in action'

Nathan Hughes on returning from injury: “I picked up a dead leg against Gloucester and have been out for a couple of weeks, but credit to the medical and S&C staff for getting me back out there.

“I’m excited for this fixture, especially having moved here from Wasps a few years ago. It’ll be a great game and we’re all looking forward to getting stuck in.”

Down to the wire

Pat Lam on recent record against Wasps: "I’m looking forward to getting back to Ashton Gate on Friday night, and obviously welcoming Wasps, which is a tough game for us. It doesn’t matter what their form is, they seem to deal with us quite well and we know that we have to be at our best – if we don’t, a lot of these games have gone down to the wire and we need 80 minutes of focus and concentration, getting our jobs done and that will help us through it."
