Gloucester 27-10 Bristol - Watch replay

Gloucester moved into the Premiership's top four with a first victory over West Country rivals Bristol since 2018.

The game was level at 3-3 until two minutes before half-time when Jack Singleton finished off a driving line-out maul to put the hosts in front.

Bristol started the second half in much brighter fashion and went in front through Henry Purdy's 44th-minute try.

A Chris Harris score and a penalty try restored Gloucester's lead, before Charlie Chapman sealed a bonus point.

Leicester vs Harlequins, 2pm on BT Sport 2HD & Ultimate - Watch live stream

BT Sport's live coverage of round 10 concludes with a genuine blockbuster encounter as league leaders Leicester Tigers face-off against reigning champions Harlequins at Welford Road. 

The Tigers are returning to Premiership action after a month-long break, while Quins will be smarting from their defeat to local rivals London Irish last time out. 

Mood is at an all-time high in the east Midlands with Leicester six points clear at the top of the table after a perfect start to the season.

The Tigers, who have not won English rugby's top prize since 2013, have announced the sale of more than 24,000 tickets for the heavyweight showdown, making it the first sell-out at Welford Road since 2018.

For Sunday's visitors, Harlequins, it is a chance to put the disappointment of last weekend's defeat to Irish behind them with a statement victory over the Premiership's early-season pacesetters. 

Quins were without England internationals Marcus Smith and Alex Dombrandt, who were rested after England's victory over South Africa, but the duo are set to return this weekend. 

Leicester Tigers and Harlequins are two of only three teams in the league to have scored at least four tries in five or more games in the Premiership this season, so expect fireworks as these two title contenders lock horns.
