Scotland international Luke Hamilton has signed on with Bristol Bears to the end of the season after initially joining the club on a short term contract as injury cover.
The 27-year-old, who made his Scotland debut versus the All Blacks in 2017 , has also previously represented Cardiff Blues, Leicester Tigers and Agen, while he left Edinburgh at the end of last season.

“We’re keen to give Luke an opportunity and have a look at how he fits into the Bears environment,” said Pat Lam when Hamilton first arrived at the club in October.
“He is an abrasive back rower who has performed consistently well in the Pro 14 and Premiership.
“He’ll provide good depth and competition to the openside position.”
