Sheedy extension has Lam buzzing
Bristol Bears director of rugby Pat Lam was delighted that fly-half Callum Sheedy has opted to extend his time at the club.
The 23-year-old joined the south west outfit back in 2014 and has become an important member of the side.
His form for Bristol was recognised when the stand-off was selected to play for England against the Barbarians earlier this summer and he will now remain at Ashton Gate until at least the summer of 2022.
Lam believes it was a shrewd bit of business to extend his stay and rates Sheedy highly.
"It's pleasing to secure Callum's services for another two years following this one, as he's a young man with a bright future in the game," he said. "Callum really excites us because he's a leader and he understands our game."
Sheedy was also stoked to get the deal done, saying: "Bristol is the club very close to my heart. They gave me my first professional contract and, since Pat Lam's arrival, my game has really progressed."
