Yann Thomas joined Bristol Bears ahead of the 2018/19 Gallagher Premiership season and has played a key part in the club establishing itself in the Gallagher Premiership.
Despite having grown up playing for Gloucester, Yann Thomas’ arrival in BS3 really is a homecoming, with the prop living just a three-minute walk from Ashton Gate.
The 27-year-old, who has a reputation as a strong scrummager, joins from French Fédérale 1 outfit, Stade Rouennais.
Thomas, who started playing rugby at Combination side, Nailsea and Backwell, made 74 appearances at Kingsholm before making the move to France’s Normandy region.
