Roberts set to pull strings against former club Bristol

Tristan Roberts will wear the Ealing Trailfinders number 10 shirt for the sixth time this season when his former club Bristol Rugby visit Vallis Way on Saturday.

Roberts spent three seasons with Bristol and scored 383 points in 54 appearances. This weekend he will link up with scrumhalf Alex Walker for the third time this season. 

Tom Wheatcroft and Danny Barnes will line-up in the centres, with James Stephenson and Phil Chesters outside them on the wing. James Love returns from injury to reclaim the fullback spot after he missed the trip to Doncaster Knights a week ago. 

In the pack Harrison Orr makes his first start after moving north from Sydney over the summer. Alongside him in the back-row are Arthur Ellis, who makes his third start of the season and captain Danny Kenny, who will pack down at number eight.

Further forward young prop Sam Rodman starts a match for the first time and he will form a front-row alongside George Porter and Matt Thompson. Behind them in the second row Nathan Hannay and Llewelyn Jones team up for the third time this season.
