Fly half puts pen to paper on new contract


Tristan Roberts has committed his future to Bristol Rugby after agreeing terms ahead of the new campaign.

The talismanic fly half, who joined in the summer of 2011, has racked up 325 points for the Club in forty-one competitive appearances.

“Tristan is an extremely talented individual with plenty of potential,” said Director of Rugby Andy Robinson. “He has a reliable kicking game and is a threat with ball in hand.

“Tristan fits the profile of the type of player we want at Bristol – along with Adrian [Jarvis] and Nicky [Robinson], we have some fantastic options in the fly half position next season.”

Formerly of Gloucester and Moseley, Roberts notched twenty-one points in the B&I victory over Cardiff in February, equalling the Club record for most points scored in a cup fixture.

The 26 year-old added: “It was an easy decision to make. The Club’s ambition is huge and there is a hunger and drive about reaching the Aviva Premiership.

“I want to play at the highest level and I’m confident that I can do that here. There’s a great team spirit at Bristol and I’m delighted to remain a part of that.”
