Bristol Bears director of rugby Pat Lam welcomes seven new signings that include Semi Radradra and former rugby league player and Siva Naulago for the 2020/21 season.

Kyle Sinckler, Chris Cook and Mitch Eadie will be joining the club from July 1 while Saracens duo, Ben Earl and Max Malins who are on loan will arrive in August. Lautoka man and England number eight Nathan Hughes has also named in the Bears squad.

Meanwhile the Bears had a very emotional online team farewell to honour players who will leave was held last Friday.

They have also confirmed their retained squad list as well as the departure of 19 players and the impending arrival of the club’s new signings.

“We had a very emotional online team farewell to honour all our leavers last Friday, but I would like to publicly thank all our departing players for contributing to our journey during their time at Bristol Bears,” Lam told Planet Rugby.

“Whether Foundation Bears or with us from last season, all these men have committed themselves to the club and our vision on and off the field – we are extremely grateful for that.

“Although the pandemic means we had to recognise our leavers online compared with what we would do in a normal season, everybody will be welcomed back to celebrate the part they played for Bristol Bears at the conclusion of the 2019/20 season,” the former Samoa international said.
