TEAM NEWS: Bristol Rugby vs Wasps Rugby

Bristol Rugby play host to top-of-the-table Wasps at Ashton Gate on Easter Sunday (3pm KO).

Mark Tainton’s men make one change from the side that secured two losing bonus points versus Exeter Chiefs last weekend.

Nick Fenton-Wells starts in the back row in place of the injured Jack Lam, while Ryan Edwards – who signed a new contract earlier in the week – is named on the wing.

Head Coach Mark Tainton said: “We’re looking to reproduce the same attitude and commitment that we showed at Sandy Park against a strong Wasps outfit.

“The challenge is still going to be massive against Wasps, but if we can produce some of our own attacking style, while showing the same discipline and physicality in defence, there will be opportunities for us.”

Olly Robinson and Tusi Pisi recover from injury to be included among the replacements.
