According to The Rugby Paper’s front page story, Bristol Bears have made a bold move for former Ireland skipper Rory Best.
The Bears are reportedly keen to invest in their squad as they see this season as a great chance to win the Gallagher Premiership with Saracens out of the picture.

However, the story linking the 37-year-old with a short-term deal until the end of the season has been branded untrue, according to Bristol Live.
The 37-year-old, who won 124 caps for Ireland between 2005 and 2019, officially hung up his boots following the Barbarians win against Brazil, kicking an incredible conversion to put the icing on the cake.
The Bears beat Brive on Friday night to continue their fine start to the season and are now preparing to face London Irish on Sunday in the Gallagher Premiership.
