“We have managed to keep some settled combinations and we would like to see the result of that out on the pitch on Saturday with a clinical performance," said head coach John Dobson.

“We know that we will have to be as accurate as possible, but that is a challenge we have embraced as we look to play the kind of rugby that our fans deserve."
