One of the standout stars of the 2019 Rugby World Cup, Samoan powerhouse Alapati Leiua has thrived since his arrival at Ashton Gate in 2017.
The powerful back, who can play centre or wing, was the club's joint leading try scorer in the 2018/19 Gallagher Premiership, scoring seven times in 14 appearances, including the decisive score against Bath on the opening day of the season.
Leiua followed that with a try against Bath at The Rec, as the Bears recorded a first away win over their rivals in more than 12 years.
Leiua made his international debut versus Scotland in 2013, earning 11 caps for Samoa so far.
