BRISTOL HAVE TODAY confirmed that former Leinster and Connacht hooker Jason Harris-Wright will be among their squad next season.

Pat Lam will leave Ireland to take charge of the south western English side this summer and the 28-year-old Harris-Wright will begin his second spell with the relegation-bound club.

The Wicklow native was allowed to leave Leinster to join Bristol in the Championship for their 2011-12 campaign. He came back across the Irish Sea the following season to join Connacht.

Most-recently playing with Clontarf after a short stint with London Irish, Harris-Wright joins Harlequins prop Tyler Gendall, Jersey flanker Nick Haining and Watsonians scrum-half Reiss Cullen (signing his first professional contract) on the incoming list at Ashton Gate behind Ian Madigan.
