Ravens are currently in second place in Pool One


Bristol Rugby return to B&I Cup action on Friday, taking on Ulster Ravens at Deramore Park – home of Belfast Harlequins – on Friday evening (7.30pm KO).

Currently second in Pool One with sixteen points, Ulster’s only defeat in the competition so far came at the Memorial Stadium in October, going down 34-28.

Liam Middleton's side scored three tries in an entertaining affair, as James Merriman, James Grindal and Iain Grieve all posted scores for the hosts.

The Ravens recorded back-to-back victories over Cardiff, earning bonus point wins at Arms Park (7-34) and then romping to a 40-14 result in the return leg.

Winger Chris Cochrane is in try-scoring form for the Ravens, while fly-half Stuart Olding kicked fifteen points in the defeat of Cardiff.

Ulster round off their B&I Cup group fixtures against Bridgend on Saturday, 19 January.
