Oxford-based London Welsh must learn the lessons of their 25-21 defeat to Bristol, says Exiles’ head coach Justin Burnell. The result guaranteed Bristol top spot in the Greene King IPA Championship table, while Welsh may still need to beat Nottingham on April 26 to be sure of second place.

'We don’t make excuses; we’re not what about that,' said Burnell. 'We lost the game and it’s up to us now to rectify our errors. We defended too much, we didn’t use the ball well and when we did use it, it was a little bit too late.'
