Hawkins Pens Extension Until End Of Campaign

Rob Hawkins has extended his contract until the end of the 2016/17 campaign, the Club confirmed today.

The hooker – who initially joined on a short-term deal in September – has impressed in the blue and white hoops, making nine competitive appearances and scoring once.

Head Coach Mark Tainton told bristolrugby.co.uk: “Rob [Hawkins] has fitted in really well since coming onboard and he’s added value and competition to the hooker position.

“We’re pleased to keep Rob with us for the remainder of the season as we look forward to the second half of the Aviva Premiership season.”

Hawkins added: “It’s been fantastic to be back involved in the professional rugby environment and I’m enjoying every day with the Club.

“There’s a real togetherness and determination to start pushing up the Premiership table and I’m delighted to be a part of that.”

Meanwhile, Rayn Smid has left Bristol Rugby by mutual consent.

The South African back rower made nine appearances during his time at the Club, following his arrival in 2015.

Bristol Rugby thanks Rayn for his contribution and wish him the best of luck for the next chapter of his career.
