Bristol Rugby will be rebranding to Bristol Bears in June.

[www.bristolrugby.co.uk]

I'd have thought they would have bigger things to worry about before next season.

I do prefer clubs sticking to their traditional names.

That's easy to say when you support a club that already has a pantomime name.

I'm not sure the Bristol Bear Fiesta was what they intended as part of the relaunch. Someone didn't do their homework.

I have one. Cotton traders, NEC on the arm, under the wording Harlequins it says "of London. It also has the quarters reversed. Not sure how old it is.

Forgot to say that I find these extra names added seem silly to me. What have sharks got to do with Sale, Cheifs with Exeter and bears with Bristol? If you want an extra name at least make it have some historical local relevance . At least there are Falcons that live in Newcastle , I'm not sure if any sharks ever made it up the Manchester ship canal. Cornish pirates I like for example.

Well we have had Brighton Bears at Basketball and we have Birmingham Bears in the cricket, so its not even original in this country. When they get relegated next season they will blame it on the name and re brand again.

-Shouldn't laugh too hard; don't we usually get the honour of being thrashed by the Newcomers on First Saturday at the London Double Headache?

-You'll remember the outcome last year, when the other London clubs - Northampton & Reading Irish- joined us & Sarries (-& look where three of the four of us are now..)

Did you mean as in the proper name which is Harlequin Football Club? Then as members of the club we would and are known as Harlequins. I think you have also missed three zeros off the end of your figure.

"Bristol Bears" is also the name of frequenters of a gay bar in Bristol and they own the site www.bristolbears.co.uk . Surely that's gonna cause some confusion if you're trying to find the club via google?

Very sad for Brisstle Rugby - club with great tradition - Bris new post match drinks venue already infamous across rugby boards days after they are promoted. Quality club decision without consulting supporters!. Thankfuly our embarrassingly patronising marketing department didn’t get there first!

Can we pun this one now we've all pawsed for thought? It's a grizzly situation when the management change the name of your club polar ising opinion and disappointing that they also expect the supporters to panda to their descisions . It's a HAIR brained idea and they don't seem to CARE.
