- Australia utility back Luke Morahan has signed to play for Bristol from the 2017-18 season onwards, the English Premiership strugglers announced. The 26-year-old has been capped three times and Bristol did not disclose the length of his contract. "Luke is an impressive player with excellent technical abilities," said Bristol head coach Mark Tainton. "He has got a lot of raw pace and versatility and can play across the back-line." Morahan previously played sevens for Australia, winning a silver medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. "I'm excited about the opportunity to play in England, but also to be a part of the ambitious journey that Bristol Rugby is on," Morahan said. Morahan is likely to find himself playing second-tier rugby with Bristol, who are currently seven points adrift at the foot of the Premiership table.
