Bristol Bears

Gloucester Lions

Is this the new sponsors from the USA of the prem wanting sexier names for the few clubs without them?

plus Chiefs, Warriors and Saints.

That leaves Harlequins, Saracens and bath. Can't do a lot with the first two, so maybe we should run a competition for Bath. I guess it should be something related to mud or mud wrestling?

I was thinking more of animal names specifically but yes only bath left. Gladiators?

I would add that it would appear that they registered the name Bristol Bears Rugby Club as a trademark in December.

Saw something on Twitter(?) today with Exeter Athletic. Is someone doing a wind up exercise?

How long have Tigers been Tigers?
I have some vague recollection of there being a bit of fuss from their fans when they adopted that name but I could have it totally wrong.

Only the clubs themselves will know what benefit they hope to get from these nicknames being "added" but when they are done artificially I am sure it can take years to take hold and sometimes never.......
