Bristol History Podcast // Bristol Rugby Club
This week I met with Bristol Bears’ Club Historian (and verified superfan) Mark Hoskins to talk all things Bristol Rugby. We discussed the evolution of the club from its origins in the late-Victorian era and its role in the community during the World Wars, through to the pioneering captaincy of John Blake in the 1950s and the club’s eventual adaptation to the age of professionalism.
