Player Recruitment

Bristol Rugby does not hold trials for entry into the Club, although occasionally we will invite individuals to spend a trial period with us.

Although we anticipate that many of our players will come through from our DPP Centres, we are continually searching for EXCEPTIONAL inexperienced talent up the age of 24.

If you are looking for a club to play rugby in the Bristol area then the Bristol Rugby Development Officer (RDO) will be able to help you.

Please use the following link to access the RFU’s contact list for RDOs.

If a player, relative, coach or agent wishes to put forward an exceptional young player for consideration then please complete the following procedures:

  • Please complete the online Player Information Form here
  • Please provide us with some FULL game footage of your most recent game which must not be older than 6 months (please send this via to
  • Please obtain THREE independent nominations which can be provided by completing the Online Nomination Forms. (Nominators should not have any relation to the player or be a sporting agent). You are able to send the link listed onto your selected nominators.
  • You will appreciate that Bristol Rugby receives a significant amount of interest from young players from all over the world and it is not possible to reply in person to them all

If you do not hear anything from us within one month of us receiving your Nomination Forms, then you may assume that you are no longer under consideration for entry into the club.
