BRISTOL back Jack Tovey will make the switch to Championship side Ealing Trailfinders at the end of the season after 10 years with the club.
The academy graduate has made nearly 200 appearances for Bristol since making his debut as an 18-year-old in November 2009.
Bristol head coach Pat Lam said: “Everybody at the Bears is grateful to Jack for the commitment and effort he has shown to the club on and off the field.
“It’s never an easy decision to leave your hometown club, but Jack will benefit from a fresh challenge and he’ll relish the opportunity for regular game-time.
“We would like to thank Jack for what he has achieved in the Bristol jersey and we wish him, his wife Harriet and his family the very best for the next chapter in west London.”
