First time at the rugby? Here’s our bluffers guide for the essential info you can use to impress your friends, colleagues or clients…
Founded in 1888 after the merger of club rivals Carlton and Redland Park, Bristol make the journey to The Stoop along the M4 from Ashton Gate Stadium. They have spent eight of the last ten seasons outside the Premiership. It’s a sore spot for their fans, with Bristol finishing top of the Championship four times between the 2009-2010 and 2015-2016 seasons, only to fail in the end-of-season playoffs that used to determine which of the top four teams were promoted to the Premiership. Following a rebrand from Bristol Shoguns – thank a sponsorship arrangement with Mitsubishi – the club now refer to themselves as Bristol Bears.
While playing for Bristol in February 2017, ex-England winger Tom Varndell surpassed Mark Cueto’s haul of 90 tries to become the leading try scorer in Premiership history. Other notable former players include Gavin Henson, Jason Little (one of only twenty players to win two Rugby Union World Cups) and Bristol’s record points scorer, Mark Tainton.
Current Bristol Bears players to look out for include England internationals Dave Attwood and Nathan Hughes as well as former All Blacks trio John Afoa, Charles Piutau and Steve Luatua.
In the 2018-2019 meeting at The Stoop, Harlequins came back from a shaky opening quarter to triumph 36-26 and record their fourth consecutive top flight league win for the first time since 2014.
The 2019/2020 Premiership Rugby Cup fixture between Harlequins and Bristol Bears will take place at The Stoop on Friday 20th September (kick-off 19:45).
The home 2019/2020 Gallagher Premiership fixture between these two teams will take place on Saturday 26th October (kick-off 15:00).
You can watch Harlequins v Bristol Bears from the best seats in the house, with food and a fully inclusive bar, from just £159 per person + VAT. Perfect if you are entertaining clients or treating a rugby fan to a day to remember.
