His stay proved to be a short one, departing to join newly promoted Rotherham Titans in the English premier division in the summer of 2003, before moving on to Bath in the Autumn of 2004.
Joining Bristol in 2005, Geraint made a welcome return to Sardis Road in readiness for the 2007 – 2008 campaign.
