Bristol Rugby head coach leaves club

Bristol Rugby's First Team Coach has left he club after three seasons.

Sean Holley joined the team in 2013, and helped the squad to win the Championship title in May.

But, after what he called "three tough years" he announced professional rugby had taken its toll and he had decided to leave.

I’m delighted and proud to have played my part in helping Bristol reach their goal of getting back to the Aviva Premiership after a seven year absence.

However, it’s been a tough three years with some highs and lows and professional rugby takes its toll, especially on the family who have remained living in Wales.

I’d like to thank everyone involved with Bristol for some great memories and wish them all the best for the future but I now look forward to pursuing some new and exciting challenges.

Sean leaves with our very best wishes and we wish him success in the next chapter of his career.
