What they’ve said?
Pat Lam, Bristol director of rugby: “The thing that is pleasing is that it wasn’t the end last week, when we didn’t give a good account of ourselves.
“This week at the end of the 80 minutes – hopefully not 100 – there is a cup at the end of it.”
Bristol and Wales fly-half Callum Sheedy to BBC Radio Bristol: “If you’d said 1,000 people for a European final last year, you’d have laughed, you’d have said that’s pathetic, but now, it’ll be crazy.
“It’ll be the noisiest atmosphere we’ve had in six, seven or eight months, so I’m really looking forward to it.”
