Cook agrees new deal with Bath Rugby

31 January 2019

Chris Cook has signed a new contract with Bath Rugby, which will take the scrum-half into his 11th season with the Club.

Born and bred in the city, the 27 year-old has made over 120 appearances for the Club since making his first team debut against Cardiff Blues in 2010. A graduate of the Academy, Cook brings a vast amount of experience to the number nine jersey. 

Cook said: “It’s massively exciting (to have re-signed). It’s not common for players to stay at a club for this long - I always play with my heart on my sleeve and put everything into it. I dreamt of playing on the Rec as a kid and to have over 120 caps is really special." 

Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder, added: “Cookie is a real competitor and someone who has given his all to Bath Rugby over the last decade. He’s a Bath boy through and through and I know how much it means to him to play for this Club. There is a great deal of competition at scrum-half and I know like the others in the position, he will continue to fight for that starting shirt.”
