All the best @bigpete3 Come on London Welsh!!!! @LondonWelshRFC— @MYGRFC 04 June 2014
This is Bristol's final game at the Memorial Stadium before they move to share with Bristol City FC at Ashton Gate. It promises to be a pulsating finale.
Bristol will have a vocal sell-out crowd behind them tonight, which could prove key, especially if they score first. If London Welsh can get their noses ahead on the night as well, they should prove very hard to stop.
It has been a wet day in Bristol with no suggestion that the rain is likely to stop. These conditions should favour London Welsh as Bristol will find it harder to play the running rugby they may well need to overturn their 19-point deficit. Kick-off is at 7.45pm
