Bristol Rugby have sacked head coach Liam Middleton.
Middleton has been dismissed following back-to-back defeats against Nottingham and Moseley that leave the club outside the Championship play-off positions.
He spent nearly two years in charge but there has been speculation over his future since the appointment of Andy Robinson as Director of Rugby exactly a month ago. Robinson will now assume total control of first team affairs.
