Stirzaker to depart for Montauban

Nic Stirzaker will depart Bristol Bears at the end of the campaign.

The scrum half is set to join Montauban in the French PROD2 and leaves Ashton Gate following two seasons with the club.

Stirzaker made 18 competitive appearances in a Bears jersey and leaves with our best wishes for the future.

Director of Rugby Pat Lam said: “Nic is a consummate professional who has been a really positive influence for our young players and an excellent team man to have around the environment.

“His communication skills and leadership have helped our team develop and his performances on and off the field have contributed to our growth as a team.

“Nic speaks excellent French and his wife Estelle hails from France. We completely support them both in this move and for the next chapter of his career.

“We wish them all the best and know they will have an amazing life experience of playing and living in France.”
