UNIVERSITY of South Wales welcome Bristol University to the Sport Park this Wednesday in their first home game of the season.

USW have only played once this term, but they finished on the wrong end of the result with a 19-13 away defeat at Bath Spa 3rd.

A week off last Wednesday was perhaps just what the doctor ordered, with USW hoping to finish on the right side of the result this time around.

Having opened their campaign with a 37-26 defeat against Aberystwyth University 2nd, Bristol pushed University of West England 4th all the way last time out, eventually falling to a 28-21 defeat in a close encounter.

But they also head into the fixture off the back of a break, too.

This is the first of back-to-back meetings between the two sides, as USW make the trip to south west England for their next fixture.

Kick off at the Sport Park is 12:00pm.
