Under Mike Rafter's captaincy, the Bristol won the John Player Cup in 1983, defeating Leicester 28–22. During this period Alan Morley established a world record of 479 tries in senior rugby.

The centenary season with Nigel Pomphrey as captain was celebrated in style with a game against the Barbarians and a narrow defeat in the cup final, but thereafter there was a gradual decline in playing standards. The team did not really adapt well to the demands of league rugby and the club's administrators struggled to cope with the professional set up.

In 1996, Bristol Rovers moved into the Memorial Stadium as tenants of Bristol Rugby, and soon stole ownership of the stadium through the Memorial Stadium Company.
