Tagicakibau: Bristol Matches My Ambition
New recruit says he is delighted to join the Club
Mike Tagicakibau revealed his excitement about joining Bristol Rugby after signing for the Club today.
The winger, who leaves Aviva Premiership side Saracens, becomes Head Coach Liam Middleton’s eighth new recruit during a busy summer so far.
“I’m delighted to be joining Bristol Rugby,” he said. “I really enjoyed my time at Saracens, but I was ready for a fresh challenge.
“I was keen to join a Club that matched my ambitions. There’s still a lot that I want to achieve in the game and I’m hoping to do it here.
“Bristol is a Club that is clearly progressing – there’s a really good environment and everything is in place for a push for the RFU Championship title next year.”
A first team regular with Saracens last season, Tagicakibau made 43 appearances for the Vicarage Road outfit.
The Fijian added: “I learnt a lot at Saracens and my game has improved during my time there.
“I know that the RFU Championship is a hugely competitive league, so excited to test myself and hopefully help the team to success.
“I’m looking forward to working with Liam [Middleton] and playing in front of the Bristol supporters at the Memorial Stadium."
