The talented scrum half – who helped England to the Junior World championship title in the summer – is relishing the chance to run out at the Memorial Stadium.

“The competition is a good chance for me and the other younger guys to play with a Bristol shirt on – which is huge for us,” he told

“It’s also a big opportunity to play in front of the coaches and to try and show them what we can do and that we’re capable to play at a high level.

“I used to come to the Community Foundation Super Sundays as a kid, so when I’m running out with Bristol Rugby and I see those kids watching me and the boys play, it’s a great feeling.

‘We’re expecting a really tough game with Leeds. They’ve got plenty of talented players who can cause us problems.

“We want to keep the momentum and winning run going and start the B&I Cup competition off with a positive performance.”
