Bristol's acting head coach Mark Tainton said:

It's great to have two more young, hungry and ambitious players joining us. George has blistering pace and plenty of experience, having represented England through the age grades and Saracens in the Premiership.

And Ehize is coming to the West Country for a fresh challenge. He is a physical specimen with all the attributes to be a top-quality lock if he continues to work hard and show the right attitude in training."
