Bristol Rugby are delighted to announce the signing of fly half Tristan Roberts from Doncaster Knights.

The 24-year old successfully passed a medical this morning and will join the Club at the end of the season. Roberts is the first new face to agree terms as Liam Middleton builds a squad for the 2011/12 campaign.

Roberts, a former Gloucester and Moseley player, finished the Championship regular season as the third highest points scorer with 220 points. During the 2009/10 season, the fly-half was the leading points scorer during the Championship regular season, notching 236 points for Moseley.

Roberts spent one season with Bristol Rugby in 2005/6, making five appearances for Bristol United in the A League.

Liam Middleton commented: “Tristan’s fits the profile of the fly half that I’m looking for. He has a good kicking game which is reflected in the fact that last season he was the Championship’s top points scorer in an 8th placed team, but he also has an exciting running game which is the balance we are after. He still has room left to fulfil his potential and that’s why he is coming to Bristol.”
