Rugby: Hill lets fans confront players

February 10, 2009

Bristol Rugby Head Coach Richard Hill wants his players to understand what relegation from the Guinness Premiership would mean to the club’s supporters.

He’s organised a meal this evening to which a number of supporters’ groups are invited, as well as the club’s playing squad.

Bristol face Newcastle Falcons at the Memorial Stadium on Friday night, and defeat could effectively relegate them from the Premiership.

Hill believes he could either try to relax his squad before the crucial game, or “lay it on thick” with the responsibility and repurcussions of relegation, and has chosen the latter.
