Nathan Brew had a spell at Bristol early in his career
Welsh international back Nathan Brew has joined Guinness Premiership side Bristol after leaving the Scarlets.
The 26-year-old had a spell at Bristol early in his career without breaking into the first team, before joining Newport in 2001.
"He joins us immediately and provides some additional midfield options," said Bristol boss Richard Hill.
Brew, who won his sole cap against Romania in 2003, lost his place in the Scarlets side to Regan King.
Brew's preferred position is at centre but the Cardiff-born player, whose brother Aled is also a Wales international, can play on the wing too.
In addition to his senior cap he has represented Wales at Under-19 and Under-21 levels, as well as being involved with the Wales Sevens squad.
