London Irish v Bristol live stream: How to watch from anywhere

It is a crucial weekend for the Bristol Bears in the Gallagher Premiership this week. The Bears had occupied the play-off places for most of the regular season but have dropped out in recent weeks following back-to-back defeats to Exeter and Sale Sharks.

Now Pat Lam’s side travel to the Twickenham Stoop knowing nothing but victory will do if they are to secure a top-four finish.

“There’s some room for improvement to take into Sunday. It’s about controlling our own performance then,” said Lam. “We’ll take care of ourselves and then it’ll just be a case of wait and see if it’s good enough to reach the top four.”

London Irish on the other hand have only pride to play for after Saracens’ automatic relegation ensured Premiership participation next season.

London Irish: Tom Homer, Ben Loader, Curtis Rona, Phil Cokanasiga, Ollie Hassell-Collins, Paddy Jackson, Nick Phipps, Allan Dell, Agustin Creevy, Sekope Kepu, George Nott, Chunya Munga, Matt Rogerson (captain), Jack Cooke, Albert Tuisue.

Replacements: Matt Cornish, Harry Elrington, Ollie Hoskins, Sebastian de Chaves, Ben Donnell, Ben Meehan, Theo Brophy Clews, James Stokes

Bristol: Ioan Lloyd; Luke Morahan, Semi Radradra, Siale Piutau (captain), Piers O’Conor; Max Malins, Harry Randall; Jake Woolmore, Harry Thacker, John Afoa, Ed Holmes, Joe Joyce, Chris Vui, Jake Heenan, Ben Earl.
