Bath Rugby confirm signing of Wilson

16 October 2017

Bath Rugby is pleased to confirm the signing of James Wilson, who has joined the Club on a three-month contract. 

The hugely experienced and versatile New Zealander made 95 appearances during a five-year spell with Northampton Saints, which coincided with the Club winning its first Aviva Premiership title in 2013-14.

The utility back, who is comfortable playing across the back line, has also played for Highlanders and Chiefs in Super Rugby.

Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder, said: “James has impressed us in the few weeks that he’s been training at Bath, so we’re really pleased that he’s staying. He gives us an extra option in a number of positions across the back line, and his experience and game management will be a big asset.”

The Club can also confirm that Scott Andrews will remain on loan from Cardiff Blues for a further two months.
