Bath have announced the signing of Scotland international prop Jamie Bhatti. Bhatti, who has won 16 caps, will move to the Recreation Ground from Edinburgh with immediate effect until the end of this season.

Bath have recruited the 27-year-old as loosehead prop cover for Lewis Boyce, who is recovering from a knee injury.

“Jamie is a high-calibre player with international experience,” Bath rugby director Stuart Hooper told the club’s official website.

“He brings a raw edge with his game and will only add to our pack for the remainder of the season.”

Bhatti made 15 appearances for Edinburgh since joining them from Glasgow last year.

Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill said: “We think this is a move that works for both parties.

“Jamie is an ambitious Scotland internationalist and is understandably keen for more game time than we’ve been able to offer here, with our props playing so well.”

The Wallabies team Joe Schmidt must pick to win back Bledisloe Cup

Rodda will be a walk up starter at lock. Frost if you analyse his dominance has little impact and he’s a long way from being physical enough, especially when you compare to Rodda and the work he does. He was quite poor at the World Cup in his lack of physicality. Between Rodda and Skelton we would have locks who can dominate the breakdown and in contact. Frost is maybe next but Schmidt might go for a more physical lock who does their core work better like Ryan or LSL. Swain is no chance unless there’s a load of injuries. Pollard hasn’t got the scrum ability yet to be considered. Nasser dominated him when they went toe to toe and really showed him up. Picking Skelton effects who can play 6 and 8. Ideally Valetini would play 6 as that’s his best position and Wilson at 8 but that’s not ideal for lineout success. Cale isn’t physical enough yet in contact and defence but is the best backrow lineout jumper followed by Wright, Hanigan and Swinton so unfortunately Valetini probably will start at 8 with Wright or Hanigan at 6. Wilson on the bench, he’s got too much quality not to be in the squad. Paisami is leading the way at 12 but Hamish Stewart is playing extremely well also and his ball carrying has improved significantly. Beale is also another option based on the weekend. Beale is class but he’s also the best communicator of any Australian backline player and that can’t be underestimated, he’ll be in the mix.
