Bristol Rugby announced on Monday that they have signed an ‘international player’, who is set to arrive at Ashton Gate in January, according to the Bristol Post.

Chairman Chris Booy commented on the side’s attempt to bolster their squad, after confirming the departure of Andy Robinson:

“We’ve got another international player that we’ve signed – that’s done. We can’t disclose his name, because he’s still under contract with his club, but he’s coming in January.”

Booy also said that Bristol were close to making another key signing in what has proven to be a difficult season for last term’s Championship winners.

“Hopefully we’ll get another international player over the line in the next 24 hours, so we will continue to strengthen the squad we have.”

Bristol are yet to record a win this season, propping up the Aviva Premiership with just two points. Having been linked to Eben Etzebeth and other big names over the last few weeks, perhaps the tide is about to turn for Bristol Rugby.
