NEWS: Alan Solomons has joined Bristol as coaching consultant with immediate effect.

The South African joins Mark Tainton's coaching set-up for the remainder of the Premiership campaign.

In a twenty-year career, Solomons has worked at international level with South Africa and the Barbarians, while also coaching the Stormers, Northampton Saints, Ulster, the Southern Kings and, most recently, Edinburgh.

"Alan is a hugely experienced operator who understands the game and has worked at the highest level for a number of years," head coach Mark Tainton told bristolrugby.co.uk.

"With seven games remaining, it's vital that Bristol rediscover our form over the Christmas period and Alan's arrival as a consultant should give everyone a boost. We believe he can add value to what we are trying to do on the training field."

The 66 year-old left Murrayfield at the beginning of the campaign having led Edinburgh to their first ever European Rugby final in 2015.

He said: "I'm delighted to be able to link up with Bristol for the next three months and assist Mark [Tainton] and the management group."
