In all of them, results have gone either way. Right now, you’ve got two teams who are at the top end of the table and both of whom will be pushing hard to get a result. “What we need to do – and we’ve spelt this out to the boys this week – is go there and put in a big, emotional performance. I’m sure Pat [Lam] will be saying the same to his team. Like ourselves, Bristol will have been frustrated with their result last weekend up at Newcastle, so we have to be ready to come out of the blocks firing and meet the challenge they throw down head on.
