Head Coach LJ Adams praised the player’s attitude throughout the game, saying: "It was great to see the commitment each and every player gave to the Bristol shirt. They never gave up and continued to push towards the try line at every opportunity.

"We’ve got some things to work on in training this week, mainly strengthening our defense and improving our tackling, but overall I’m happy with the way the team is developing and looking forward to playing at home next weekend."
