Thiede to depart at the end of contract

Lewis Thiede will leave Bristol Bears at the end of his current contract.

The tighthead prop has made thirty-one competitive appearances for the club since joining in the summer of 2018.

Director of Rugby Pat Lam said: “Lewis departs at the end of his contract with our best wishes and full support. He’s a hugely popular member of the group and we are grateful for his contribution to the club.

“It’s an exciting time for him and his partner Kate, who are expecting their first baby and are looking forward to starting a family in London, where Kate grew up.

“What’s been really pleasing is how Lewis has developed during his time here. Our culture is all about growing as a person and a professional. Lewis will leave as a better rugby player and with an exciting chapter of his life ahead of him, both personally and on the field.”
