Bristol Bears have announced the signing of former Harlequins winger Gabriel Ibitoye.
Ibitoye, who left Quins in 2020 has been something of a rugby outcast in recent years, playing for Agen, then Montpellier and finally at Israel’s top team, Tel Aviv.
Despite not playing his best rugby while in France, Ibitoye has gone on to shine at Tel Aviv and Pat Lam will hope he can continue this form while playing for Bristol next season.
