Palamo Staying With Bristol

Thretton Palamo will return to Bristol next season. The Eagles center made a handful of appearances for the team this year on their return to the Premiership while also dealing with some injuries. However, he's showed enough to stay at the club next year. Bristol will be relegated at the end of the year and most of the time team's do a lot of retooling when that happens. Bristol are now different but they've continued to bring in strong names making Palamo's retention that much more meaningful. Palamo should have a good opportunity to get in a run of games next season similar to how Canadian Ciaran Hearn got a good amount of time with London Irish in their return to the RFU Championship.

Getting consistent playing time is going to be big for Palamo with only a couple of years remaining until the World Cup. You can expect him to be a part of the Eagles summer series squad this summer and to vie for a starting spot in World Cup qualifying.
