Pat Lam<br />

“It’s a great opportunity for some of our<br />

younger players to experience representing<br />

the <strong>Bears</strong> at Ashton Gate, so it’s a game<br />

we’re excited by. We’ve got 16 current or<br />

former Academy players in the matchday<br />

squad, which is fantastic and a key pillar of<br />

our vision. The competition is also great for<br />

someone like Deago Bailey, who has had a<br />

long-term injury and is buzzing to get back<br />

out there.<br />

There are guys who played in our title<br />

winning U18 side last season who will make<br />

their competitive debuts on Wednesday<br />

night, so that’s exciting.<br />

It’s a fantastic development tool for these<br />

young lads and I’m really excited about the<br />

talent that is coming through. It’s about guys<br />

showing us that they can play the <strong>Bears</strong> way,<br />

and this is their chance to do that.“<br />

<strong>Bristol</strong> <strong>Bears</strong><br />

Women<br />

SARACENS 33-66 BRISTOL BEARS<br />

DIRECTOR OF RUGBY<br />

ROB BAXTER<br />

<strong>Bristol</strong> <strong>Bears</strong> beat last season’s Allianz Premier 15s<br />

champions Saracens in a try fest at the StoneX.<br />

Dave Ward’s side ran in five tries in the first half and five<br />

in the second, to put 66 points past the London outfit.<br />

A hat-trick for Ella Lovibond, doubles for Lucy Burgess<br />

and Courtney Keight, whilst Amber Reed scored 12 points<br />

on her return.<br />

Big ball carrying from Row Marston in midfield saw the<br />

<strong>Bears</strong> play quick ball, with Reed releasing the ball out<br />

wide to Lovibond who ran in to score from the half-way<br />

line. Saracens responded soon after through Abi Evans.<br />

Burgess and Lovibond scored in quick succession, then<br />

Saracens scored three to nudge slightly ahead 26-21.<br />

With only five minutes to go, Lovibond scored her third<br />

and Simi Pam made a lovely break to hand the <strong>Bears</strong> a<br />

26-35 lead at half-time.<br />

Saracens struck first early on in the second period.<br />

However, ill-discipline cost the home side. With a<br />

Saracens player in the sin-bin the <strong>Bears</strong> pounced and<br />

scored twice in quick succession. First through Holly<br />

Phillips and then the tap and go worked a treat for a<br />

second week in a row for vice-captain Ellie Mulhearn.<br />

Burgess scored her second from twenty metres out,<br />

before Keight also ran in a double to seal a dominant<br />

victory for the <strong>Bears</strong>.<br />
