“The rebuild” – Bristol Bears sign five players, including England speedster

Bristol Bears have confirmed five new signings ahead of the 2023/24 Gallagher Premiership season.

Bristol Bears sign five players:

#1. Max Malins from Saracens

The 25-year-old, who has 14 caps for England, enjoyed a prolific loan spell at Ashton Gate between 2020 and 2021, scoring 18 tries in 19 matches and helping the Bears to a maiden European title and top spot in the Gallagher Premiership.

Last season’s leading try scorer in the Gallagher Premiership with 16, full-back Malins signs a two-year deal at Ashton Gate.

Director of Rugby, Pat Lam, said:

“Max is already one of the top players in the Gallagher Premiership and he made a huge impact during his loan spell with us at the Bears. We are all looking forward to welcoming him back into our team again.

Malins added:

“I’m delighted to have signed with the Bears. During my loan period, I was made to feel very welcome by the fans, thoroughly enjoyed my rugby and made some good friends. I look forward to returning and hope to carry on where I left off.”
