Good luck to the lad. It was posted on Jersey's Twitter account so no secret in the move.  I am personally delighted to see players getting a chance to step up a level but its a bit sad to hear of players moving to other clubs at the same level.
Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

Van Breda is a Capetonian and bound to have come here with Premiership ambitions. Good luck to him. I had a van Breda at school with me and no doubt he's a relation.

Cry  I humbly apologies to all concerned, especially Islander. It's clear that everyone knew except me because of my limited exposure to the normal media outlets. Again, SORRY.

Ryan Bevington has joined Newport Gwent Dragons next season, shame really as he is a solid scrummager but I guess we are moving on under Pat

Tom Varndell on 'loan' to Scarlets for the rest of the season but clearly he hasn't got a Bristol contract for next season.

Varndell signed to Scarlets with immediate effect.

Heavy rumour of Harry Randall to Bristol, don't know much about him aside from he had time at Hartpury. Anyone know more?

Scarlets have got a proven talent in Varndell so good luck to him. Harry Randall is a phenomenal talent imo but I just hope he actually gets game time at Bristol who may run the risk of collecting too large a squad of talented players so that they never build a settled match team. Players often improve with a consistent run of games in a settled side and whilst there will always be a need to cover injuries in a squad too many quality players in a squad can lead to over frequent and unsettling team changes. I suppose they could always lend him back to Hartpury or even Jersey?

Too true. A lot of players whom most clubs would give their eye teeth for kick their heels at large clubs. What a waste!

Given the only other senior scrum half we have on the books next season is Stirzaker, I would say he's in with a good chance. Especially as Uren, who just signed a contact, had to be subbed after 30 minutes playing against your side (Jersey) as he was unfortunately quite bad and his actions directly resulted in two tries as I've been led to believe.

IMO Uren is as much of an exciting talent as Randall or indeed Cochrane who is another fine scrum half at Hartpury and if Bristol are collecting a batch of these young stars I sincerely hope they have a sensible development plan. These lads need to play rugby and will be put under pressure particularly when playing in a side which doesn't give proper attention to guarding the fringe of breakdowns. If young talent is cast aside or put down the order after a minor set-back imo Bristol would be better off recruiting 30 year old experienced players who hit the ground running. The Bristol website still shows Ryan Glynn on their books and he has loads of experience and a great pass if they want a safety first choice.

given the number of appearances that dan Thomas has made this year over more established people like jack lam, pat lam's cousin no less, you would think that pat has shown he has confidence in younger players

Read on Ruck.co.uk that Paul Doran-Jones was joining Ealing from Wasps. Will be interesting to see what he has left in the tank.

No reasons given.  McMillan has been injured for a while and has had problems in the past so that may be an issue.  Tuohy?  Was injured for quite some time amd I think currently has a shoulder problem but good enough to be loaned out to Leicester recently.

Tuohy had an arm injury at the end of last season and a hamstring at the start of this and came back from Leicester when he got injured. He is a good player when fit.
