Siale Piutau agrees one-year extension

Siale Piutau becomes the latest key player to commit his future to Bristol Bears after agreeing a new deal.

The Tongan international signs a new one-year deal to remain at Ashton Gate until 2020.

Piutau has made a powerful impact in the club’s midfield since his arrival in early 2017.

“Siale [Piutau] is hugely experienced and that’s been vital for us in this first half of the Gallagher Premiership campaign,” said head coach Pat Lam.

"He brings nous and physicality to our game and is one of our leaders, on and off the field. Siale is bought into the club vision and what we are striving to achieve."

“He brings nous and physicality to our game and is one of our leaders, on and off the field. Siale is bought into the club vision and what we are striving to achieve and he is eager to contribute to those goals.”

Piutau has made 36 appearances for the club, including 10 so far during the 2018/19 campaign.

The 33 year-old added: “I’m delighted to be staying at Bristol, it’s a city that me and my family have a close affinity to and we love it here.

“The opportunity to represent the Bears and to play alongside my brother is one that I’m hugely grateful for and I’m excited about the direction that the club is going. Everybody is focused on the second half of the season and pushing us up the table now.”
