Bookies have Bristol finishing around 9th. Internally top 6 is the target after narrowly missing out in the previous season. It's possible but anything could happen as again it seems another tight season where any team bar Exeter or Sarries could finish top 4 or relegated.

Looks a good squad. Do not know where i am predicting you to finish though. Got to say Pat Lam is one of the best coaches in the game. A certain Clubs fans would love to have him back there. The shirt that was launched at a Bear attraction place/Zoo is really smart.
 
Yeah I love that EU shirt, away one is quite nice too. I'm okay with the red on home shirt and it looks better in person after I was in the club shop last night but feel its lacking a splash of white: hoops on the arms like last season's might have worked.

Also updated the squad list above with a couple of additions (Lahiff + Johnson-Fisher)

Here's the EU shirt for those that haven't seen it

Jake Woolmore +2 year extension. Really pleased with that.

Will try to work out what year that takes us to and update OP later.
 
That EU jersey looks good. I bought a home jersey recently after vowing never to have anything with a bear on it... Not terribly good quality if I'm honest.
 


Radradra signed, 2020-21 (3 Years)

Charles Piutau re-signed (2 years, starting 2020-21)
 
Sad news too; Sam Jefferies taking a break from playing due to injury (still working with Bristol Bears in backroom role) to see if recovery is possible.

Dude has amazing talent and potential so hopefully will return.
