considering what he did for us its rather sad to see how his career has declined since he left here .
I hope things work out for him , a true Bristol legend .

Funny old world isn't it. I know these things happen in professional sport, but it must irk Iain when he thinks about the loyalty he showed Bristol, and where that loyalty has got him personally in the long term.

Always wonder what would have happened if he'd snapped up one of the prem contracts that was reportedly waved in front of him. He was certainly good enough for that level.

I hope he does well at Harpbury.

I wish him all the very best. His travails at a shaky Plymouth Albion and the pressure he was under skippering here are two reasons why I will never begrudge players leaving Bristol for the sake of their careers. Of course there are ways in which you can depart (and clubs you can choose to go to), and we can have views on the wisdom of choices made but, at the end of the day, it's not our choice to make. It's their job, their business. Good luck, Iain.

Iain grieve,,has had an operation on his knee(serious one) and has been training to get back to fitness all last season.
His knee was the problem at Plymouth but went to Ealing,where it was found to be no good.
So hence the operation,,he looks as though he will come back for Hartbury,faster and fitter.
Well done Iain,,(seeing as how he may not have played again.)

I think it's safe to say Griever will always be highly regarded by Bristolians, not just for his undoubted playing ability but leading us through our darkest time in recent history. Also the gorilla. Can't imagine he'll have to buy a drink at anything rugby related again. Some great memories, Andy Goode may disagree though. smiling smiley
