Tighthead prop Scott Andrews has joined Bath Rugby as short-term injury cover.
Andrews arrives on loan from Cardiff Blues, where he has made over 142 appearances in his 12 years with the region. He has also won 13 caps for Wales.
The Club can also confirm that Australian international hooker Nathan Charles has extended his contract until the end of October.
Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder said: “We’re really fortunate to be able to bring an international quality player into the squad in a position where we’ve been hit by injuries. Scott comes with a great deal of experience, which I’m sure will be crucial over the coming weeks.”
