Bristol have signed centre Gareth Maule from the Scarlets in time for the new Championship season.

Wales Under 20 cap Maule played over 100 times for the Scarlets and also had stints at Newport Gwent Dragons, Ebbw Vale, Newport RFC and Cross Keys.

I depart with some invaluable memories, gathered in my years with this special club and feel honoured to have worn the famous Scarlet jersey on so many occasions and to join the list of centurions is something that makes me immensely proud. Being able to be part of so many memorable occasions and huge fixtures was a huge privilege.

A special mention must go to the supporters. From the day I arrived I felt welcome and was quick to realise that the Scarlets has its very own style and the fans are no different!
