Three internationals among 9 new arrivals at Bath
Three internationals are among nine new arrivals confirmed at Bath as the club usher in a new era under Johann van Graan.
It’s been a nightmare season for Bath, who despite significant financing, finished bottom of the Gallagher Premiership. The West country side managed just five wins and a draw in this season’s competition and fared little better in the Heineken Champions Cup.
Van Graan, who presided over an admittedly mixed bag of results at Munster, will be hoping he can turn the club around after their worst ever Premiership campaign.
With that in mind, the club confirmed their playing squad for next season.
As confirmed earlier in the year, Dave Attwood is back and set add to his 157 performances in Blue, Black, and White, while the veteran quartet of Chris Cloete, former Springbok Louis Schreuder, Niall Annett and England international Piers Francis has also been enlisted.
Van Graan has brought Cloete with him from Munster, along with former Saracens fullback Matt Gallagher.
Back Row: Abdul-Khalik Akenzua Al Kareem, Josh Bayliss, Chris Cloete, Jaco Coetzee, Thompson Cowan, Richard de Carpentier, Tom Ellis, Mackenzie Graham, Arthur Green, Will Jeanes, Nahum Merigan, Frankie Read, Miles Reid, Ethan Staddon, JJ Tonks, Sam Underhill, Wesley White
Scrum-Half: Tom Carr-Smith, Max Green, Louis Schreuder, Ben Spencer
