Bridgend remain in third place in Pool 1 following round three of the B&I Cup last weekend.

The Ravens have one win and two defeats so far, following a 32-8 reversal to Bristol Rugby on Saturday.

The victory – only Bristol’s sixth in twenty-four fixtures at Riverside Hardware Brewery Field – was achieved on the back of a Matt Williams brace, as well as efforts from Alafoti Faosiliva and George Watkins.

Bridgend went down 49-19 to Ulster at Deramore Park in the opening round, before bouncing back with a 25-7 victory over local rivals Cardiff in October.

Following Friday’s game, Bridgend return to B&I Cup action on Saturday, 12 January against Cardiff at Arms Park, before completing their Pool 1 fixtures at home to Ulster on Saturday, 19 January.
