Bears Beyond The Gate

In this week's show we reflect on the 20-13 defeat at home to Sale Sharks. The team from 'up north' brought their A game to Ashton Gate and stifled our attack. We ask what can we learn from this loss and its impact on our season.

There's a preview of our next game away at local rivals Gloucester. Not just another Premiership game, we are also looking to retain the Rifles Cup that's awarded to the winners of the league matches between Bristol and Gloucester. With our friends from Kingsholm having a torrid season, will Bristol get back to winning ways?

We also talk about the sad news that Bristol legend, John Pullin, passed away last week. Whilst playing for the club, John won 42 England caps and captained his country as well as taking part in two Lions tours. We give our thoughts on what the club should do to recognise his illustrious playing career.

All this and more with Lee, Miles, Pete and Tony.
