Gloucester Rugby’s only win in the last six rounds of Aviva Premiership Rugby was 3618 at home to Wasps in round 8, although one of these games was drawn and in three others they picked up a losing bonus point.
Bristol Rugby are still without a victory in Aviva Premiership Rugby this season, but they have at least picked up three losing bonus points in the last four games. Bristol have not won away from home in Premiership Rugby since their trip to Newcastle in March 2008.
The two famous old rivals have not locked horns since 2008/09 when Gloucester won both encounters in Premiership Rugby. Bristol have beaten Gloucester just once since 2006: 29-26 at Memorial Stadium in February 2008, whilst their only victory at Kingsholm since 1994 came in Premiership Rugby in March 2006.
