Last time out Bristol faced Loughborough Lightning, while the Sharks traveled to league leaders Saracens. Bristol lost narrowly in a close fought game, whilst the Sharks went down 44-19 at Allianz Park. The Sharks will take many positives from their performance however, having scored more points than anyone else in the league against a frugal Sarries defence.
The Sharks will be hoping for 3 home wins on the bounce, having beaten Loughborough Lightning and Worcester Valkyries in weeks 6 & 7 respectively. With a host of international players returning for both sides, we're all set for what promises to be an entertaining game!
Match tickets are available on the day from both the CrossBar and the South West Turnstiles. Tickets for the double header will be priced at just £10 for adults, £8 for concessions and as always, kids go FREE. Fans only attending the second game can see the Sharks in action for £2, with kids once again going free.
