The centre – who has scored four tries in four Pool Five fixtures so far during the campaign – told bristolrugby.co.uk that victory would continue the Club’s recent momentum.

He said: “It’s important to pick up a good result, because we want to start 2014 on a high and build momentum going into the crucial second half of the season.

“We’re in a strong position in the B&I Cup so far this season and another good result could see us in pole position to qualify for the knockout stages.

“The guys who are given a chance to pull on the Bristol shirt at the weekend will be ready and raring to go. We really want to kick on this competition.

“We’ve been putting in the work on the training field, so now it’s about playing our game and being disciplined and showing the right attitude against Aberavon.”
