Exiles visit the Mem for second leg

London Welsh will look to protect a nineteen-point advantage when the Exiles visit the Memorial Stadium on Wednesday, 4 June (7.45pm KO).

Justin Burnell's men stormed to a 27-8 victory in sodden conditions during the Greene King IPA Championship final first leg at the Kassam Stadium.

Trailing to an early Marco Mama try, Welsh stormed ahead courtesy of tries from Nathan Trevett and Nick Scott in quick succession. 

Carl Kirwan touched down after the interval to ensure victory for the Exiles ahead of the second leg in the West Country.

When London Welsh visited the Mem during the regular season, Bristol raced into a 22-0 lead, before being pegged back to 25-21.
