Rugby Union: Bristol retain Dwyer

Click to follow
BOB DWYER will shortly sign an extension to his contract with Bristol, the Allied Dunbar Premiership Two leaders, that will see him remain as director of rugby until the end of the 2001-02 season.

Dwyer will be responsible for the new enlarged squad of players when Bristol's buy-out of London Scottish is completed at the end of the season. He was director of rugby at Leicester Tigers before losing his job along with his assistant, Duncan Hall, last February.

Ulster have been allocated 28,000 tickets out of the 49,000 available for the European Rugby Cup final match with Colomiers at Lansdowne Road on Saturday week. Ulster were originally given a 20,000 ticket allocation but that was increased because the Irish Rugby Football Union has been inundated with ticket applications.

The 49,000 crowd will be the biggest for a European Cup final, beating the 36,500 which watched Bath beat Brive at Bordeaux last year.
