It is a top of the table clash at the Mennaye Field.

The Pirates face Championship frontrunners Bristol later, as the play-offs loom.

Our boys suffered a narrow defeat the last time the sides met.

Coach Ian Davies is expecting another tough game: "Confidence is OK at the moment but we're under no illusions that it's going to be a really tough battle against Bristol. They're top of the table and thoroughly deserve to be there. Their back line has got a lot of experienced players and it'll be a battle, not only in the forwards but the backs as well, because we've got some good runners too".
