Transfer News: Bristol Bears sign Youtube sensation

YouTube sensation Tyrese Johnson-Fisher has been handed an opportunity in professional rugby at Bristol Bears.

The British speedster received worldwide exposure in 2015 when his four-try exploits for Oakham School in a Natwest Schools Cup fixture amassed over 2.5m views online.

The speedster – who won the 60m National Indoor Finals in 6.89 seconds and ranked third in the country in the U17 100m sprint with his time of 10.73 seconds – links up with the Bears on a one-year senior deal with immediate effect.

The 19-year-old was ranked third in the UK over 100m at Under-17 level and spent last year as a running back at Coastal Carolina University.
