Dave Attwood pens Bears extension

Bristolian lock Dave Attwood has agreed with the club to activate the extension to his contract for one further year.

The 34-year-old, who has made 52 competitive appearances for his hometown club, re-joined the Bears from Bath in 2018, establishing himself as key member of the squad.

Director of Rugby Pat Lam said: “Dave has been outstanding on and off the field since his return home to Bristol. He has added real value and experience to our team and is a vital part of our senior leadership group.

“We’re really pleased that Dave is continuing his journey with us. His consistent level of performance underlines his commitment to his personal standards and to the Bears.”

A product of the Bristol Academy, Attwood made 24 appearances for England.

Attwood added: “I’m enjoying my rugby more than any time in my career, and that is a reflection of the players, coaches and everyone at the organisation from medical to media to staff at Ashton Gate. The alignment in their philosophy and the love shown in their approach has helped me develop as a player and a person.

“I have loved working with such an ambitious group and my family and I are delighted to be able to continue this journey with the Bears.”
