Bristol have announced that 20 players will leave Ashton Gate at the end of the season.

Joe Batley has signed with Worcester, while Nic Stirzaker, Lewis Thiede, Shaun Malton, Luke Daniels, Sam Graham, Ollie Dawe, Luke Hamilton and Brian Byrne also depart.

Director of rugby Pat Lam is set to welcome seven new signings for next season, including England prop Kyle Sinckler.

Semi Radradra, Chris Cook and Mitch Eadie are also joining, with Ben Earl and Max Malins due to arrive on loan from Saracens.

Fiji's Siva Naulago is set to arrive in the autumn.

Lam told the club's website: "We had a very emotional online team farewell to honour all our leavers last Friday, but I would like to publicly thank all our departing players for contributing to our journey.

"They've all played their part and we wish them the very best for the future."
