Team news: Bristol Bears 'A' vs Saracens Storm

Bristol Bears ‘A’ welcome back several players from long term injury in the Premiership Shield on Monday (7pm KO).

Sean Marsden’s side - who suffered a loss at the hands of Harlequins in the last outing in the competition – face third placed Saracens Storm at Clifton RFC.

Aaron Chapman returns to action from a lengthy spell on the sidelines, while James Dun and Jack Cosgrove is also included in the 23-man squad.

Sam Jeffries makes his first outing of the season following a head injury sustained during the pre-season campaign.

"With Storm and Exeter – two traditionally tough fixtures – in the space of a week, we’re looking to the senior players to continue to show leadership as they have throughout the competition."

“We started really well against Quins but they punished us after the break when we gave them possession inside our own half,” said Marsden.

“With Storm and Exeter – two traditionally tough fixtures – in the space of a week, we’re looking to the senior players to continue to show leadership as they have throughout the competition, while the young players returning from injury is a real positive for us.”

Entry is free for season card holders and £5 for non-season card holders.
