Former England Under-18 hooker Ollie Hayes has rejoined Bristol after after two seasons away with Worcester Warriors.
Hayes, 23, played ten times for Worcester but was clearly happy to be returning to the Championship side. "I'm delighted to be back at Bristol," he said. "It's a club that is close to my heart."
"Ollie is a consistent performer who knows Bristol and the values that the club holds," said director of rugby Andy Robinson. "He's got top flight experience and, as a young player, there is still plenty of time for him to develop."
