Do Bristol have any players worth signing who are out of contract or may have release causes if they get relegated?

I'd take Woodward but believe he's off to Gloucester

Hurrell I'd like onboard.



I'd rather be a Paddy than a Quin!!

Currently sponsoring Greig Tonks for season 16/17.

Bris fan here ... Hurrell is staying smiling smiley
Good luck in the play offs though ...Only right that the best team get promoted and you have clearly been the best this season. May get to play you again one day !!

I think Bristol have the resources to ensure that most of their players will stay with them, apart from maybe Woodward who seems to have international aspirations. I would rather look elsewhere to boost our squad for next season.

Cheers hoopsy, I'm sure you'll be back in the prem straight away, just hope it's not a straight swap with us if we go up!

Odd situation we at Bristol are now in. The incoming Pat Lam is busy signing more players rather than letting them go. With the funding of our wealthy backer, we're likely to have a stronger team NEXT season than this!

Strangely enough, most LI fans would also say the same. The only players of note we lost were Maitland and Symons. Both good players (although not if you ask some in here in Maitland's case), but more than offset overall by the signings of Marshall, Bell, Robson, de Chaves etc.

Certainly think our squad this season is stronger than last year. Whether it would have been good enough to stay up is another question all together though.

In Bristol's case, with funding behind them and no playoffs in place (so very likely to return) I only really see important players leaving that have international aspirations of some sort. So perhaps Woodward will be the extent of it, of the players you'd rather keep. Assuming he even goes.

Either way, good luck next year (assuming we go up...)
