Bristol sign forwards Faletau and Cosgrove

Bristol have bolstered their front-row options with the arrivals of props Sione Faletau and Jack Cosgrove ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

Tighthead prop Faletau – who has three caps for Tonga – makes the switch from Yorkshire Carnegie having previously represented Canterbury and Counties Manukau.

Former Scotland U20 prop Cosgrove arrives from Edinburgh in the PRO12. The 22-year-old has made nine appearances for Scotland U20s, including the Six Nations and Junior World Championship.


RUGBY QUIZZES: 

“We’re pleased to be able to bring two really talented props into our environment next season,” head coach Mark Tainton told Bristol’s website.

“Sione is a powerful front-rower who has made a significant impact with Yorkshire Carnegie this season. The Championship has some excellent players and, at 28 years old, Sione is in the prime of his career.

“Jack is a young loosehead who has cut his teeth in the PRO12 and we’re excited about his quality. He’s keen to take on a new challenge and we’re looking forward to seeing him compete for a starting place.

“Both players were impressed that there’s a clear understanding about what we want to achieve and they’re eager to be a part of that.”
