Bristol Bears v Saracens: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

Premiership rugby action continues on Saturday as Bristol Bears host Saracens at Ashton Gate, with both sides looking to further cement themselves in the top four.

The Bears are on a five-game winning streak, including victories in each of their last three home matches, while Sarries put an end to their six match losing run on the road with a hard-fought 15-12 victory at third-placed Bath last time out.

Bristol v Saracens stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

The Bears have lost each of their last five meetings with Saracens, but they look a stronger prospect going forward this season, with no side in the Premiership scoring more points than Bristol’s 518.

318 of these points have come at Ashton Gate, which also puts Bristol at the top of the charts for most points scored at home.

Sarries, meanwhile, have lost three of their last four on the road in the Premiership but they should still pose a problem for the Bears on Saturday, given that they boast the best defence in the division with just 347 points conceded.

They also have a far superior head-to-head record over Bristol and have won each of their last two visits to Ashton Gate.

Bristol v Saracens team news

Bristol team news

The Bears look to have an almost fully fit squad available for selection for their meeting with Saracens, with Max Malins and Callum Sheedy both returning to the fray after spells on the sidelines.

The latter may only be fit enough for the bench, so American international AJ MacGinty should keep his place at fly-half.

Saracens team news

There are no fresh injury concerns for Mark McCall affecting his Saracens side and plenty of faces should keep their places in the starting line-up from the side that edged to a 15-12 win at Bath last time out.

Full-back Tom Parton and winger Rotimi Segun both scored tries in that victory and will be expected to keep their places in the first XV.
