A World Cup winner with the All Blacks in 2011, Afoa has enjoyed a distinguished club career so far, representing the Blues, Ulster and Gloucester before his switch to Bristol in 2018.
“It was a fantastic first season for Bristol and an easy decision to extend for another year. I’ve been in a lot of different team environments, but the culture and togetherness that Pat Lam has instilled here is right up there with the best," said Afoa.
"...I’m enjoying my rugby and contributing to the club vision. There’s lots of excitement about what the team can achieve and the quality of players that we have in the squad. We’re focused on kicking on now in the coming season and reaching those goals."
