“Life-changing opportunity” – Bristol Bears departures reach NINE

To improve their underperforming squad, Bristol Bears’ head coach Pat Lam is planning to release funds by clearing out some players at Ashton Gate.

The Bears have failed to meet expectations in the Premiership, and they are looking to make significant improvements for the 2023/24 Gallagher Premiership season.

However, due to salary cap restrictions, the team will have to let go of several star players to revamp the squad.

Bristol Bears departures:

#1. Morgan Eames to Bourgoin-Jallieu

#2. Semi Radradra to Lyon

Following the departure of Joshua Tuisova at Racing 92 next season, Lyon wanted a high-level replacement.

According to reports in France, Radradra has accepted an offer of around £500,000 per season for two years.

A total agreement was found between the two parties. A pre-contract has been signed, which means after four seasons in England in Bristol, the Fijian X factor will return to the Top 14.
