A focused, determined and skillfull performance on Saturday saw Ross register an important away league win in Bristol. With three home games on the bounce, this is an opportunity to push themselves into the top four by the end of the league campaign.

With the sun on their backs, Ross started strongly. Scrum half Jack Donavan directed proceedings well at the base of rucks and, with Oli Floyd, Craig Boughton, Chris Thomas and Mike Chandler offering themselves as runners, Ross were able to get over the gainline and on the front foot.

This big Bristol side was not going to be easy to break down, especially at home, but Ross were always looking to move the ball. Twice, winger Gareth Holdsworth cut a scything angle through the home defence but could not find his support runners to give that scoring pass. Read the full report in this week's Ross Gazette.
