Bears sign World Class Lark Davies

England hooker Lark Davies will join Bristol Bears from Loughborough Lightning ahead of the 2022/23 Allianz Premier 15s campaign.

The 27-year-old, who helped the Red Roses to a Grand Slam title in this seasonโ€™s TikTok Six Nations, tops the 2021/22 Premier 15s try scoring charts with 16 as Lightning secured a seventh-place finish in the competition.

The 40-cap international scored five times during the Six Nations campaign, lining up alongside Sarah Bern in a dominant England front row.

Head Coach Dave Ward said: โ€œWeโ€™re delighted to bring a player of Larkโ€™s class and experience to the Bears. Everyone saw during the Six Nations just what a World Class player she is and we look forward to seeing her in Bears colours.

โ€œLarkโ€™s set-piece work is outstanding and her try scoring record speaks for itself both at club and international level. Itโ€™s an exciting time to be at Bristol Bears and weโ€™re excited to have Lark joining the journey.โ€

Davies added: โ€œThe Bears have really taken the Premier 15s by storm this season and Iโ€™m excited to get to work at the World-Class High-Performance Centre.

โ€œItโ€™s a hugely talented squad with a clear identity and after meeting with Dave (Ward) and hearing about the Bears vision and programme, I knew this is where I needed to be to grow as a person and a player.โ€
