Bristol Rugby are pleased to announce the signings of Anthony Elliott and Jonathan Brandling-Harris

Bristol Rugby are please to announce the signing of back-three player Anthony Elliott and back-rower Jonathan Brandling-Harris.

Anthony Elliott 29, who can play either wing or full-back, joins Bristol for a second time having been at the Club for the 2007/8 and 2008/9 seasons. After leaving Bristol, Anthony played for Bordeaux in France before returning to England and playing for Birmingham - Solihul.

Anthony is determined to make the most of his second spell at Bristol after signing a contract until the end of the season.

After recently leaving Birmingham - Solihul, Elliott was contacted by Bristol Head Coach Paul Hull.

Anthony says....

"Since leaving Birmingham & Solihull, things have moved pretty quickly – and for me it was a no-brainer to come back here. As a family, we grew very fond of Bristol when we were here last – and I have always said to my wife that if I ever had the opportunity to come back then we would certainly seriously consider it – and here it is,"

Back rower Jonathan Brandling-Harris has signed for Bristol until the end of the year following a trial period with the Club.

Bath based Jonathan most recently played for Amatori Alghero in Italy and previously has had spells in England with Saracens, Blackheath and the Cornish All Blacks.
