Bristol have announced the signing of Scotland international back-rower Magnus Bradbury. The 26-year-old will join Bristol ahead of next season, following England prop Ellis Genge and Sale Sharks fly-half AJ MacGinty as a third new arrival at Ashton Gate.


Bradbury has won 17 caps, including three appearances during this season’s Guinness Six Nations Championship, while he has featured more than 100 times for Edinburgh.

Bristol rugby director Pat Lam said: “Magnus is a physical, athletic back-rower with outstanding work rate and all the attributes to thrive in our system.

“To be a centurion at Edinburgh at such a young age shows his consistency and attitude, and we’ve seen from his performances on the international stage that he can compete at the very highest level.

“Magnus brings further quality and physicality to our back-row as we continue our recruitment for the 2022/23 campaign.”


Bradbury, who made his full Scotland debut in the 2016 November Test victory over Argentina, added: “It’s an exciting opportunity to come to Bristol and play in the Gallagher Premiership. This is a massive club with great ambitions and a world-class coaching team – I’m looking forward to the challenge that awaits.


“I’d like to pay tribute to Edinburgh and my teammates, the fans and staff at the club. It’s been an incredible journey and I am grateful for the support I have received over many years.”
