The Bristol Bears are in France to face RC Toulon in Aix-en-Provence in the final of the European Challenge Cup 2019/20

Pat Lam’s side are looking to win Bristol’s first major silver coin in 37 years, the club’s only blow to what’s left of this season after being knocked out of the Gallagher Premiership play-offs in the half final last weekend with a 47-24 loss to Wasps Rugby

Bristol reached the final with a 37-20 victory over Bordeaux-Begles in the semi-final, while Toulon beat Leicester Tigers 34-19 in the other half of the draw
