Alafoti Faosiliva will make his first appearance in a blue and white jersey when Bristol Rugby face London Scottish at the Memorial Stadium on Friday (7.45pm KO).

Bristol continue with a five forwards and two backs split on the replacements bench, with Kyle Traynor returning to the 22-man squad after international duty.
