Q&A with Steve Lansdown:
So, Steve, do you know what gets bums on seats in a rugby stadium?


No, Steve, not bears, a good team, playing attractive rugby. Letís try another question: Do you know what makes for a winning rugby team?

I'm going to go for... bears!

No, no - it's good players who are well coached. Unless, that is, you know something we don't and a rule change means having a stupid name gives you a ten point start.

Well, that's definitely bears.

I didn't ask you a question, Steve.

Well, that's something for us to get our teeth stuck into (laughs to self).

Steve, that literally makes no sense.

Together we rise as bears building rugby Bristolian success through bears.

Right, Steve, I'm off.

Haha. Seriously though, there isn't a Bristol Rugby any more in his eyes and barely a Bristol with multiple references to "The Bears";

[SL]that is what we are going to be going forward and the Bears are going to take from where we are now to where we want to be.

And not much in the way of blue and white hoops?
"This is all down to design and focus, who knows if it will be more striped in the future than what they are now? The shirts have been designed to give us a new identity and a new focus.

"Some people will like it and some people wonít but we are a brand new rugby club now by becoming the Bristol Bears and the Bears will take us forward. "
