John Afoa joined the club ahead of the 2018/19 Gallagher Premiership campaign.
A World Cup-winning All Black international of 36 caps, experienced prop Afoa joins Bristol from West Country rivals Gloucester.
The tight-head made over 100 appearances for the Cherry and Whites and makes the move down the M5 to bolster Pat Lam’s front-row options.
The former Auckland Blues and Ulster front-rower made his All Blacks debut against Ireland during the 2005 Grand Slam tour of the home unions, and looks set to slot seamlessly into Lam’s blueprint.
