But he was injured shortly before arriving in Paris and did not play for the French outfit.

“The dual-code Welsh winger is on a short-term contract with the club and looking to return to full fitness in March,” read a Bath statement.

“He will be available for selection in Bath Rugby’s friendlies against Gloucester Rugby and Leinster Rugby.”

Blue Bulls utility forward Jacques Du Plessis and scrum-half Neil Le Roux have also joined up with Bath as part of their rehabilitation process.

Bath have agreed a provisional deal to keep Du Plessis until the end of the season should he return to full fitness, while former South Africa Under-20 international Le Roux joins from Blue Bulls in the United Rugby Championship.
