RugbyPass presents an original documentary which examines the revolution and return to the Premiership of the Bristol Bears.


Championed by billionaire investor Stephen Lansdown, led by championship winning coach Pat Lam, populated by a bevy of top stars and sporting an ambitious rebrand – Bristol Bears have reconstructed themselves as they once again face into the edifice of English rugby’s elite competition – the Gallagher Premiership.

In April Lansdown said the club had been “in a time-warp and we got caught out last season in the Premiership – we can’t let that happen again.”

This is the story of that venture.

RugbyPass talks to the main actors in this revolution in a bid to lift the lid of one of English rugby’s most intriguing stories of reconstruction and redemption.

Welcome to the ‘The Bear Pit’.
