WESTCOUNTRY DERBY Skivington on Bristol "stardust"

Gloucester head coach George Skivington admits tonight's top versus bottom Premiership Westcountry derby at home to Bristol will test his Cherry & Whites to "another level".

Skivington said: "It doesn’t get much tougher than Bristol who are top of the league and play great rugby.

"They are a tough team to analyse because they have scored a lot of maul tries, they have scored a lot of wonder tries out the back, there is a lot of variation in what they do.

"They are coached very, very well. It is exciting because it is a local derby and they are currently the best team in the country and it is going to be another level to test ourselves.

"I am expecting they will be disappointed with the result last week and I am expecting a sharp Bristol team, a team who are not used to losing to have probably not had an enjoyable week. I am certain they will come here sharp and looking to make amends.

"They’ve got stardust all over the place in the squad and there’s plenty of threats even without Semi Radradra on the field."
