When I saw this article I had to check that it wasn't the 1st of April but as of 1st June Bristol Rugby is due to re-branded as Bristol Bears for their return to the premiership.
I don't know how this has come about but some fans seem to think the big American Insurance company Gallagher who are the new premiership sponsors for next season are behind the move.
As you can imagine there are a lot of unhappy people on their fans forum but as a club who has gone from Penzance & Newlyn to the Cornish Pirates we are aware of why these things are done in the professional era.

It's not so much of a step to go from "Pirates" which is what PZ and N are usually called, to Cornish Pirates. But Bristol to Bears? I don't get it. What has Bears got to do with Bristol? It's Warwickshire Cricket!

All the fans could have turned up to games in branded stovepipe hats in club colours. I like it.

Whatever you do, do it safely!
