Plymouth Albion have signed England Under-20 prop Ellis Genge in a dual-registration deal with Bristol.
The 19-year-old has made three appearances for Bristol this season, but none since October.
He has moved from the Championship leaders to its bottom club, who are without a win so far this term.
"Regular games will be fantastic for Ellis' development. He's learning his trade at prop and has a bright future," said Bristol academy manager Mike Hall.
