Bristol Rugby have signed the All Blacks' Charles Piutau ahead of the 2018/19 season.

The 25-year-old utility back has 16 caps for the All Blacks. He was voted Pro12 Player's Player of the Season in 2017 and named in the Aviva Premiership Team of the Season in 2016.

Bristol Rugby have called the signing "one of the biggest coups" in the club’s history, as Head Coach, Pat Lam, brings him back on a two-year deal from Ulster.

Charles Piutau, who can play full back, wing or centre, will be joining his brother, Siale, in the West Country.
