Adrian Jarvis Confirms Retirement At End Of Season

Adrian Jarvis will retire at the end of the season following a fifteen-year professional career.

The 33 year-old – Bristol’s record points scorer in league fixtures with 744 points – spent eight seasons with the Club after initially joining in 2008 from Harlequins.

After a spell with Yorkshire Carnegie, he rejoined Bristol Rugby in 2013 and played an integral role in the promotion campaign back to the Aviva Premiership.

In 157 competitive appearances, Jarvis has racked up a total of 933 points, putting him eighth on the Club’s all-time list of points scorers.

“It was a difficult decision to call an end to my professional career, but I felt it was the right time for me and my family. I’m incredibly grateful to the sport for providing me with the opportunities it has and I have been fortunate to represent some fantastic clubs,” the fly-half told bristolrugby.co.uk.

“I will take great memories with me from my time with Bristol Rugby. I have made friends for life and my family are settled and very happy in the city. The way that the supporters have backed me and the team through many highs and lows is a testament to their loyalty and the affinity between the rugby club and the city.”

A hugely popular figure among the supporters, Jarvis made his England Saxons debut versus Italy in 2008, before being selected for the Churchill Cup summer tour to Canada and the USA.

Head Coach Mark Tainton added: “Adrian [Jarvis] has been an excellent servant to Bristol Rugby over the years. To make over 150 appearances for any club in the professional era is an impressive achievement and Adrian is held in high regard by myself, the players and supporters.

“Adrian will remain an integral part of our plans for the remainder of the season. On behalf of Bristol Rugby, we wish Adrian the best of luck for the next chapter in his life and thank him for his contribution.”
