Bristol target another England international after Sinckler signing
Bristol Bears are targeting another England international as they look to strengthen for the 2020/21 season.
Pat Lam had already signed World Cup star Semi Radradra before confirming the addition of premier tighthead Kyle Sinckler this morning.
According to The Rugby Paper, they’ve made contact with Exeter Chiefs flanker Matt Kvesic, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
The talented openside, who has four England caps, has made 57 appearances for the Chiefs, scoring 13 tries.
Kvesic is reportedly open to the move although it’s thought that Exeter would also like to hold onto the 27-year-old.

Meanwhile, Sinckler said he could not turn down the opportunity to play under Lam at Bristol.
“The Bears are an ambitious club on the up and it was great to visit the city and the facilities they have,” he added.
“There’s a clear plan in place for long-term success and I’m looking forward to contributing.
“I’m grateful to Harlequins for everything they have done for me and my career. I’d like to thank the coaches, fans and my team-mates for all their support over the years.”
