Bristolian Ellie Mulhearn is in line to make her 50th appearance on Saturday afternoon when introduced at Shaftesbury Park.

The prop who began her rugby journey at North Bristol RFC made her debut for the club in September 2017 against Richmond FC. 

Amy Coles will make her first start of the season on the right wing with Courtney Keight lining up on the left after her try-scoring exploits last time out against DMP Sharks.

Two changes to the pack as Welsh duo Natalia John and Siwan Lillicrap come in to line up at second row and number eight respectively.
