Tainton Reacts To RFU Investigation Findings

Following today’s announcement from the RFU, Head Coach Mark Tainton released this statement.

“We’re glad that this matter has finally been put to bed. It’s been of significant distraction to the coaches and playing squad during an important period of the season.

“As well as training days lost due to the RFU investigation – where individuals were interviewed at length at the training base - the Club have also incurred legal costs as part of ensuring our interests were protected.

“We were disappointed to be wrongly accused and that the complaint was made public at such an early stage in the process. Bristol Rugby knew at all times that we were innocent of any wrongdoing. We are pleased that this has now been confirmed.

“We draw a line under this now and focus on what is important: keeping this Club in the top flight.”

Bristol Rugby will be making no further comment at this stage.
